DAVIDSON, N.C. -- Jovan Smith ran for a touchdown late in the game to put Morehead State up 35-28 over Davidson for its first conference win on Saturday.
The teams were tied at 28-all late in the fourth quarter when Smith ran 30-yards for the winning score. After the kickoff, Brandon Barbee intercepted Davidson's Tyler Phelps on first down to seal the victory.

Page threw a pair of touchdown passes late in the first quarter, one to Ian Holder and the other to Jarin Higginbotham.
