Oct 10, 2009 - 10:29 PM BALTIMORE(AP) -- Devan James ran for a 7-yard touchdown in the first quarter and Morgan State held on for a 7-6 victory over North Carolina A&T on Saturday.

The Bears (4-1, 2-0 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference) are 4-1 for the first time in 30 years. Morgan State has won four straight games and remains tied for first in the MEAC.

James scored with 24 seconds left in the first quarter to give Morgan State a 7-0 lead. North Carolina A&T (3-3, 1-2) missed two field goals and a penalty cost the mistake-plagued Aggies a touchdown on a kickoff return in the first half.

Midway through the third quarter, an Aggies punt hit a Morgan State player at the Bears' 11-yard line. North Carolina A&T scored three plays later on a 1-yard touchdown run by Tony Coles, but Fred Davis blocked Patrick Courtney's extra-point attempt.

The Aggies' Wallace Miles missed a 51-yard field goal as time expired.
