The Drake Bulldogs take a three game winning streak on the road this weekend as they travel to Florida in the Pioneer Football League to take on Jacksonville. At 5-4, the Bulldogs can lock up a winning season with a victory but it won’t be easy against a Jacksonville team that at 7-3 has already set a school record for wins.
Drake coach Chris Creighton says they are riding as high as they ever have, and if they win they get to play for the conference title. With a victory over Drake the Dolphins would host Dayton for the PFL championship but Creighton doubts the Bulldogs will catch them looking ahead.
Creighton says they could be excited about playing for the championship and have a lull, or he says they could be focused in and get their first win over Drake. Drake has won all seven previous meetings in the series and to win this one must find a way to slow down a Jacksonville offense that is averaging over 34 points per game.
Jacksonville is 5-1 in the PFL. Drake is 3-3.
