Matchup: Bowie State (0-0) at Cheyney (0-0) Time: 1 p.m. Site: O'Shields-Stevenson Stadium, Cheyney, Pa. Outlook: The good news is that Bowie returns 19 starters from a team that finished 3-7 last year. But the Bulldogs open with five straight road games. That will test coach Michael Lynn's veteran squad led by senior quarterback Jason Scott (Dunbar) and running back Isaac Redman. Cheyney (1-10 last year) hands the reins to rookie coach Jeff Braxton, a graduate of Salisbury. Bowie leads the series 9-4.

Robert Council's final numbers in Morgan State's 28-3 rout of visiting Bowie State might suggest that the redshirt senior quarterback fared poorly in that game. But that's not how Council or his coach saw it. Council threw just 10 passes, completed two, and gained 18 yards. But with redshirt sophomore running back Herb Walker Jr. carrying the ball 20 times for 180 yards and two touchdowns, the Bears (1-2) didn't really need to rely on Council to lead the offense through the air. “We could've thrown the ball,” said Council, who added 12 rushes for 73 yards and two touchdowns.

Lee Hull didn't need any convincing that his Morgan State defense was physical. What he had been waiting for was proof that the unit could stop opposing offenses. Hull got what he wanted in the Bears' 28-3 rout of Bowie State at Hughes Stadium on Saturday. A defense that had surrendered a combined 60 points and 53 first downs in back-to-back losses allowed just a first-quarter field goal and 19 first downs overall. After the Bulldogs (0-2) went 69 yards on their first drive to convert a 37-yard field goal, they had only one longer series, and that ended in a fumble Morgan State (1-2)

After starting fast but finishing poorly in its first two games, the Morgan State football team flipped the script Saturday. The Bears overcame a lethargic start, woke up their sleeping offense and scored all four of the game's touchdowns in the second half to knock off visiting Bowie State, 28-3, before an announced 4,238 at Hughes Stadium. Morgan State was happy to win its first game of the season, but Bears first-year coach Lee Hull said the team can ill afford slow starts.

As one of the shortest players on the Morgan State football team, Herb Walker Jr. has a nickname among his Bears teammates: "Smurf. " The running back, who recently confessed to being 1 inch shorter than his already diminutive listed height of 5 feet 8, has heard worse from defenses. The insults don't bother him as much as the assumptions behind them. Opponents tell Walker he's "soft. Or I don't run hard," he said. "But they'll feel me when I get the ball. " Neither label fit after the 19-year-old Walker set a school record a week ago. In Morgan State's 26-23 loss Saturday to Holy Cross, 26-23, the sophomore rushed for 271 yards and two touchdowns on 29 carries.

After three successful seasons, the Annapolis Shakespeare Company is completing its final production as a resident theater company at Bowie Playhouse with a fine production of Shakespeare's "The Tempest," continuing weekends through Aug. 17. Annapolis Shakespeare was founded in 2009 by Sally Boyett as a workshop group and quickly rose to become an accomplished performance company at Bowie Playhouse. Nevertheless, when the troupe made its Bowie debut in 2011 with "Twelfth Night," one could hardly have anticipated it outgrowing this venue in just three years.
