Caylin Newton’s 4 TDs spark Howard past Morgan State, 39-14

WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) — Caylin Newton threw for two touchdowns and ran for two more as Howard throttled Morgan State, 39-14 in a Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference battle Saturday afternoon.

The effort gives the true freshman, the younger brother of Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Cam Newton, 18 touchdowns, nine rushing and nine passing.

The Bison, who won three games the previous two seasons, are 4-3, 3-1 in the MEAC.

Newton ran 19 yards for a score in the first quarter, then hit Jequez Ezzard with a 58-yard touchdown and Kyle Anthony with a 75-yard strike before running in from a yard out late in the third.

The Howard defense shined throughout the game, adding a scoop-and-score touchdown on a Morgan State fumble with under three minutes left in the game. The Bears (1-6, 1-3) managed just two touchdowns despite driving into the red zone six times, with the second score coming in the final minute.
