On the heels of its third consecutive victory to open the 2018 season—a 41-14 drubbing of Central State—Morehouse will serve as the favorite in a marquee event, not just within the SIAC, but spanning the landscape of HBCUs.

After being tested in a 34-30 opening-week win at Arkansas-Pine Bluff, the Maroon Tigers have cruised in back-to-back outings—a 42-20 win at Lane College and the aforementioned blowout of the Marauders.

The sledding has been much tougher for their opponents on Saturday, Miles College.

The Golden Bears remain winless despite back-to-back admirable performances, including last week’s 21-19 setback against Fort Valley State—a game Miles led most of before the latter of two fourth quarter touchdowns by the Wildcats ultimately led to defeat.

Sims Excelling in Starring Role

Sophomore quarterback Michael Sims has been the catalyst for Morehouse’s early-season offensive success thus far.

Sims has completed 60 percent of his throws (48-of-80) for 661 yards, seven touchdowns and no interceptions through three victories, while also rushing for 114 yards and a score.

In the Tigers’ week two victory at Lane, Sims was 13-of-23 for 243 yards and five touchdowns. A week ago, in the win against Central State, he accounted for 271 total yards and two scores.

Sdelamora Picks Up SIAC Weekly Honor

Morehouse sophomore kicker Fernando Sdelamora was named SIAC Special Teams Player of the Week after his performance in the team’s victory over Central State last week.

Sdelamora hit a pair of 34-yard field goals and went 5-of-5 on extra points.

Smith Keeps Miles’ Offense Alive

Miles quarterback Daniel Smith has played well despite what the team’s trio of early losses may lead some to believe.

The junior from Peoria, Ariz., has completed 51 percent of his throws (38-of-75) for 535 yards and four touchdowns against three picks thus far. He has also gained 107 yards on the ground, though sacks have backed his net total off to 38 yards through three games.
