NORFOLK, Va. -- Norfolk State's defense forced a season-high five turnovers, four in a 20-point first quarter, and the Spartans notched their second shutout of the season in a 30-0 victory over Morgan State on Saturday.

Nico Flores passed for 216 yards and two touchdowns for the Spartans (4-7, 2-6 Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference), who closed the season on a two-game winning streak. The Bears (3-7, 2-5), who were held to 221 yards of offense, lost their fifth straight.

Norfolk State's defense set the tone on the first drive. The Bears received the opening kickoff, but on the second play Spartans defensive lineman Cameron Jude sacked quarterback Robert Council and forced a fumble. Linebacker Jamal Giddens pounced on it at the Bears' 4-yard line. Two plays later, freshman Brendon Riddick scored on a 2-yard run.

Council also threw three interceptions, one of which Deon King returned 15 yards for a touchdown.
