In his first year as Morgan State's football coach Lee Hull has led guide the Bears to a 3-3 start and a 2-1 mark in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference. It's the first time the program enters its bye week with a .500 overall record and a winning league mark since the 2011 squad went 5-3 overall and 4-1 in the MEAC before enjoying a weekend off. So, it's easy to see why Hull likes where the Bears are. “I think we're headed in the right direction,” he said Tuesday morning during his weekly conference call arranged by the MEAC.

Maryland football players and coaches spent Sunday breaking down and critiquing their 52-24 loss Saturday to Ohio State at Byrd Stadium. Now the Terps hope to take advantage of their bye week before preparing for their Oct. 18 home game against Iowa. In particular, Maryland (4-2, 1-1 Big Ten Conference) will look to get as healthy as possible. Several players, including starting outside linebacker Matt Robinson (Atholton) and reserve defensive backs Zach Dancel and Daniel Ezeagwu, missed Saturday's game against the Buckeyes, now ranked No. 15. Starters such as inside linebackers Cole Farrand and L.A. Goree also have been playing through injuries.

We've reached the midpoint of the regular season in high school football and offenses are in high grear, just rolling up the points -- as many as 109 in No. 3 Gilman's 69-40 win over No. 13 Archbishop Spalding. The Sun's Top 15 averaged 36.6 points this week with six of them scoring 40 or more points. But there were some close games around the area too, so here's a look at some of the statistics that stood out -- high and low -- from Week 5. 1 Helicopter recruiting visit from Penn State coach James Franklin to scout the Franklin-Woodlawn game Thursday 2 Touchdowns scored by Eastern Tech linebacker Brandon Hlavach -- on a 50-yard interception return and a 41-yard run after a blocked punt -- in a 45-12 win over New Town 2 Points scored when Liberty's Travis Smith tackles North Carroll's ball carrier in the end zone late in the fourth quarter to seal a 22-13 Lions' win 3 Touchdowns scored by Archbishop Curley's Deonte Harris on his only three carries in a 53-0 win over Chesapeake-BC 3 Touchdowns thrown by Broadneck quarterback Canaan Gebele in the first 8:08 of the Bruins' 49-0 win over North County 4 Consecutive shutouts by Edmondson with a 36-0 win over Forest Park 4th Down when St. Paul's quarterback Anthony Pino completed a 17-yard touchdown pass to Tyler Rockhill with 1:38 left, just before they connected on the conversion pass to beat John Carroll, 22-21 5 Touchdown...

Stevenson has already beaten one of two teams that shared last year's Middle Atlantic Conference title and will go for the sweep with a visit to Lycoming on Saturday. The Mustangs (4-0, 3-0 in the league) defeated Lebanon Valley, 20-14, two weeks ago, but coach Ed Hottle admitted that tangling with the Warriors, who have won 15 league championships, is the litmus test of the season. “They're the big dog in the conference,” Hottle said Wednesday. “They're the defending conference champion, and they're the team we aspire to be. They're perennially very good in the conference, they're well-coached, they're big and physical, they don't make mistakes.

Most of The Baltimore Sun's Top 15 football teams demonstrated their dominance in Week 5 with almost all of the 11 victorious teams winning by huge margins. The only Top 15 teams that lost fell to other Top 15 teams. Calvert Hall had the week off. In a rare slate of Thursday games, because Yom Kippur began Friday night, all of the Top 15 teams played a day or two early and all but one of the winning teams clobbered its opponent by three touchdowns or more. Only No. 9 Howard's win over No. 14 Glenelg was close, 20-15.

It's not every day a helicopter lands near a high school football field to drop off a major college football coach on a recruiting trip. Thursday afternoon, Penn State coach James Franklin made such a splashy entrance at Woodlawn to see a couple of Franklin's top prospects. While recruiting by helicopter is nothing new for the Nittany Lions coach, it was something new for the Franklin high school players he was there to see. Indians coach Anthony Burgos said Franklin was looking at senior offensive lineman Patrick Allen and junior wide receiver Steven Smothers.
