The Drake Bulldogs will be on the road this weekend in the Pioneer Football League to play Marist. The Bulldogs are 4-1 in the league race and have their title fate in their own hands, again, after the University of San Diego was stunned by Campbell last week.
Drake coach Chris Creighton says it’s exciting that all their goals are still intact with three weeks to go and they can control their own destiny. Marist is 3-5 overall and 2-3 in the league race after a 28-10 win at Butler. He says they’ve played Jacksonville tough and are not scared by anybody in the league.
The Drake defense should be able to make the Marist offense one dimensional. The Red Foxes average only 78 yards per game one the ground while the Bulldogs give up only 82 yards of rushing per game. He says previous games don’t make it happen, they have to go out and do it.
Marist says road wins are difficult to achieve in the league race and they will need to play well to make it happen.
Drake is 6-2 overall
