RICHMOND, Va. (AP) _ Robert Morris threw for 242 yards and two touchdowns and Charles Barnette caught seven passes for 126 yards as Norfolk State defeated Virginia Union 26-0 Saturday.

Morris, who was 22-for-30, tossed scoring passes of 6 yards to Tyrone Sellers in the first quarter and 10 yards to Marlos Thomas in the second.

The Spartans (1-1) also used a stifling defense to take a 20-0 halftime lead. The Division II Panthers (0-2) had minus-10 yards offense at the end of the first quarter and did not manage a first down until 5:09 before halftime.

Morris’ two TD passes were sandwiched around a 5-yard touchdown run by Chris Williams.

DeAngelo Hodges added a 6-yard scoring run with 4:05 left in the game.

Norfolk State finished with 349 yards total offense to 175 yards for Virginia Union.
