DES MOINES, Iowa – Every interception was celebrated like a Super Bowl victory. Drake’s defense forced three straight turnovers in its annual Spring game Saturday afternoon to win the exhibition 43-17. “I thought on the defensive side we had great energy. On the offensive side we were flat from the start,” says Drake head coach, Rick Fox.
Drake is trying to build off its 7-4 finish from last season. Fox says this team has the ability to win their 3rd conference title in five season, “What’s going to be key this fall is poise under pressure. It’s not going to be easy. That was my big challenge to them in the huddle after the game.”
The Bulldogs open their 2015 season September 5th at home against William Jewell.
