DES MOINES, IA--I spent the day in Des Moines today with my two sons. What beautiful weather for the midwest this Halloween eve--mid 60s for the game. I watched the Bulldogs win this matchup after taking the lead just before the half at 14-10.
Michael Piatkowski threw two touchdowns and ran for another as Drake defeated San Diego 38-17.
Piatkowski had scoring throws of 6 and 14 yards - both to Steve Platek - and added a 3-yard TD run for the Bulldogs (6-3, 5-1 Pioneer), who won their third straight game. Piatkowski completed 16 of 28 passes for 188 yards.
The Bulldogs intercepted San Diego quarterback Mason Mills four times, including one by linebacker Ben Morrison that he returned 95 yards for a touchdown to open the scroring on the opening possession of the game.
Mills threw two touchdowns for the Toreros completing 27 of 36 passes for 294 yards.
San Diego had only 68 yards rushing on 43 attempts, but still outgained Drake 376 to 343 in total offense.
Patrick Cashmore had 112 yards rushing for Drake.
Drake improved to 6-3 overall and are 5-1 within Pioneer League play. San Diego fell to 3-6 overall and are 3-3 within the league.
