Drake 39, Waldorf College 7

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Freshman Scott Phaydavong ran for 154 yards and three touchdowns and Drake held Waldorf to 60 total yards in winning 39-7 Saturday for its eighth straight victory.

Phaydavong carried 20 times and scored on 26, 2 and 13 yards in topping 100 yards for the seventh time this season. He did not play in the fourth quarter as coach Rob Ash rested his starters in preparation for next Saturday's Pioneer Football League championship game at Morehead State.

Drake (9-2) would tie the school record for victories if it wins that game.

Waldorf (2-8) managed only five first downs and did not drive into Drake territory until late in the third quarter. The Warriors got their touchdown on Lee Schissel's 61-yard fumble return in the fourth quarter.

Drake had three sacks and held Waldorf to 3 yards rushing in 29 attempts. The Bulldogs also recorded a safety when Poul Collins and Ryan Frehse tackled punter T.J. Meyer in the end zone after an errant snap.

Jason Jones, a senior playing in his final home game for the Bulldogs, caught five passes for 125 yards, including 33-yarder from Connor Jostes for the first touchdown.

Jostes finished 14 of 22 for 212 yards and one interception.
