HAMPTON, Va. (AP) — Travis Champion threw three second-half touchdown passes to lead Hampton to a 42-18 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference victory over Morgan State on Saturday in the teams’ season finale.

Champion, who replaced Bradford Hudson to start the third quarter with the Pirates (7-4, 5-3) leading 7-3, completed 13 of 17 for 192 yards, including touchdowns of 25 yards to Isiah Thomas, 33 to Javaris Brown and 27 to Reginald Hicks.

Hudson, who completed 6 of 13 for 59 yards, had a 10-yard scoring pass to Thomas in the first quarter. The Pirates’ other first-half possessions ended in seven punts and one fumble.

After Champion’s first two TD passes, the Bears (5-6, 4-4) pulled within 21-11 on a 2-yard scoring run by Jourdan Brooks with 11:44 remaining. But Hampton responded with a 36-yard scoring run by Dyrri McCain.

Sophomore linebacker DeVonte Hawkins made nine unassisted tackles and assisted on 15 for Hampton.
