CONWAY, Ark. (AP) - Rumeall Morris ran for 122 yards, including a 58-yard dash for the go-ahead touchdown, to lift Northwestern State to a 24-19 win over Central Arkansas on Saturday night.

His score was followed up early in the fourth quarter when Paul Harris connected with Bradley Brown to widen the advantage to 24-13.

Harris finished throwing 11 for 14 for 97 yards. He also ran for a touchdown in the first half.
