Drake hopes to stay in the hunt in the Pioneer Football League race at home on Saturday against the University of San Diego. The Bulldog defense came up big last week in a win over Davidson as they improved to 4-1 in the PFL.
Drake coach Chris Creighton says after seven games of not winning the turnover ratio they felt fortunate to be 3-1. He says they knew when they finally did win it, there would be an explosion. The got two defensive touchdowns against Davidson.
Creighton says San Diego is much better than it’s 3-5 overall mark. He says they are one of the best in the conference in terms of athleticism an speed.
Drake is the only team in the league without a field goal and that could become a major factor in close games. He says they are 100% on extra points, but have been “jinxed” up to this point. He says it will be like the turnovers, as soon as they hit one, it will likely be one that will win them a game.
Drake is 5-3 overall.
