TOWSON, Md. – Representatives from Towson University and Morgan State University held a press conference Tuesday afternoon at the Greene Turtle to talk about the Battle For Greater Baltimore football series that will resume Sept. 2 at Johnny Unitas® Stadium.

“We are excited to renew the rivalry with Morgan State,” said Towson University Director of Athletics Tim Leonard. “The series is not only good for both Universities, but it is also very beneficial to the Greater Baltimore community. Both myself, and (Morgan State AD) Ed (Scott), are committed to playing this game as often as the schedule permits.”

The teams are scheduled to play the home-and-home series in 2017 and 2018. During the press conference, both AD’s noted that they are working out the details of extending the series through 2020.

The teams will be playing for the first time since Towson defeated the Bears, 42-3, on September 3, 2011. The Tigers hold a 17-6 advantage in the all-time series, and have won the previous 12 meetings played at home.
