MJ Morris Threw A Career-Best Four Touchdown Passes As North Carolina State Thwarts Marshall 48-41

MJ Morris made his first start of the year and had a career-high four touchdown passes as North Carolina State defeated Marshall 48-41 on Saturday afternoon.

The sophomore Morris completed 17 of his 32 attempts for 265 yards. He threw three interceptions, two of which came in the first period, but he eventually got into the game and gave N.C. State (4-2) a chance to win.

“He gave us the spark we needed,” Wolfpack coach Dave Doeren said. “He’s a mentally tough young man. Wouldn’t expect anything less from him. He’s going to respond – that’s who he is – when he gets in a tough situation, he’s going to fight.”

The nine-game winning streak that Marshall (4-1) had going back to last season was broken. With a season-high 315 passing yards and four touchdowns (two passing and two rushing), Cam Fancher led the Thundering Herd.

The match between the Herd and the Wolfpack devolved into a frantic shootout with six lead changes. It was the most scoring game either club had played in all season when the dust settled.

After Marshall scored in the third quarter on a 28-yard throw from Fancher to Jayden Harrison, N.C. State answered almost immediately and took the lead permanently. The Wolfpack’s longest offensive touchdown of the year came on the second play of the subsequent drive when Morris connected with an open Trent Pennix in the center of the field for a 62-yard touchdown.

In order to increase its advantage, N.C. State added two field goals from Brayden Narveson and a touchdown pass of eight yards from Morris to Kevin Concepcion. Each of Concepcion and Pennix’s touchdowns was two.

While both offenses were highly effective, the Wolfpack’s capacity to put Fancher under pressure was essential. N.C. State recorded a season-high six sacks in addition to six quarterback hurries. On third or fourth downs, three of those sacks occurred.

“The difference between Power Five and Group of Five is depth,” Marshall coach Charles Huff said. “But we had opportunities to win the game. We had opportunities to close out the game, and we made way too many mistakes in those moments to finish it out.”
