DES MOINES, Iowa -- Mike Piatkowski threw three touchdown passes, Gary Scott ran for 119 yards and a score, and a late interception helped Drake rally Saturday to beat Morehead State 28-25 in the Pioneer League opener for both teams.
Piatkowski, who was 29 of 41 for 268 yards, hit Joey Orlando on a 9-yard score in the second quarter. In the fourth, he found J.T. Teague and Nick Rosa for 16-yard touchdowns before Scott's 14-yard scoring run put the Bulldogs (2-2) up 28-17.
Rees MacShara's 4-yard run and a successful two-point conversion pulled the Eagles (1-3) within three, and Morehead State got the ball back with less than 2 minutes left. But Zach Lewis, who earlier threw a 26-yard touchdown to Donte Sawyer, was intercepted by Tyler Moorehead and the Bulldogs ran out the clock.
MacShara led all rushers with 132 yards, and Brandon Bornhauser had a 27-yard scoring run for the Eagles.
