The Drake Bulldogs came into this past Saturday’s away game against Butler in an odd situation; starting quarterback Ian Corwin and backup Luke Bailey were out due to injury, forcing 3rd string first-year Blake Ellingson into his first career start. This short-notice change put pressure on the Bulldogs defense, as their best chance to win would come from a low-scoring affair. Luckily for them, the Bulldogs defense came prepared.
The Bulldogs dominated defensively, allowing just three points and 245 total yards of offense for Butler to work with. This dominant defensive performance carried Drake to a win, as the Bulldogs were only able to score six points offensively.
