Eastern Michigan entered the field by sledgehammering a concrete wall for what seemed to take much longer than planned.

YPSILANTI, Mich. -- Dylan Mulder kicked a 42-yard field goal early in the fourth quarter to lift Eastern Michigan over Morgan State 31-28 in the teams' season openers on Saturday.

Morgan State led 28-21 in the third quarter after three Robert Counsel touchdown passes, including a 75-yarder to Thomas Martin.

Eastern Michigan responded with a 10-play, 76-yard drive, culminating with Ryan Brumfield's 14-yard scoring run. After holding the Bears to a three-and-out at the end of the third, Eastern went nine plays and 45 yards to set up the game-winner.

Morgan State scored first as Lamont Brown III capped a 13-play, 75-yard drive with a 3-yard touchdown run.

The Eagles then scored three straight touchdowns. Darius Jackson plunged from the 1, Emu Adams recovered a blocked punt to score and Brumfield had a 16-yard run.

The game was delayed late in the fourth quarter due to weather conditions.
