POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. (AP) — Luke Bailey threw for 205 yards and a touchdown, and the Drake defense forced two turnovers in a 10-3 win over Marist on Saturday.
Bailey connected with Trey Radocha early in the second quarter for a 14-yard touchdown to begin the scoring. Shane Dunning added a career-long 53-yard field goal with 7:44 left in the fourth to cap the scoring.
Dunning's field goal came after Ethan Zager made an interception in the red zone and returned it 28 yards.
Each team was held under 280 total yards — including just 34 yards rushing for Marist. The Drake defense has held opponents to less than 100 yards rushing in five games this season.
Colin Howard caught four passes for a team-high 72 yards for Drake (6-3, 6-0 Pioneer), which beat the Red Foxes for the first time since 2019. The Bulldog defense also recovered its 11th fumble of the season after Finn Claypool’s strip-sack and Jacob Auen’s recovery.
Matt Stianche made eight grabs for 99 yards for Marist (4-5, 4-3). Logan Brabham was 9 of 13 for 79 yards with an interception.
