BALTIMORE (AP) Jordan Reid's touchdown pass to Detwan Robinson with 25 seconds left gave North Carolina Central a 24-20 victory over Morgan State in a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference matchup Saturday.

Trailing 7-3 after the first quarter, Travis Davidson gave Morgan State (3-3, 2-1) the lead after two rushing touchdowns - one for 5 yards and one from 7 yards out with 2 minutes left in the second quarter. Davidson finished with 105 yards on 18 carries.

Oleg Parent's 35-yard field goal as the first half expired cut Morgan State's lead to 17-10 at halftime.

After Arthur Goforth's 10-yard run tied the game for North Carolina Central (4-2, 3-0) at 17, Earvin Gonzalez kicked a 34-yard field goal with 9:05 left in the fourth quarter to give Morgan State a three-point lead.

Reid answered on the final drive, though, going 47 yards on seven plays for the game-winning 26-yard completion to Robinson.
