UNI gets late interception to seal win over Indiana State


October 2nd, 2022 by Chris Parks

UNI grabbed a 20-14 win over Indiana State on Saturday at the UNI-Dome. Panther quarterback Theo Day ran for one touchdown and threw for another to Alex Allen in the win.

The Panthers took the early lead with a score on their first drive, a 6-yard run by Day. UNI ended up leading 10-3 at halftime and struck again on the opening drive of the second half. Day found Allen for an 18-yard strike to cap off an 87 yard drive. The Sycamores would score the next 11-points to get within three of the Panthers with 7;41 left in the game. UNI would drive and tack on a 35-yard field goal with just under two minutes to play and the defense stepped up. Benny Sapp III grabbed an interception in the final minute to seal the Panther win.

UNI moves to 2-3 overall and 2-1 in the Missouri Valley Football Conference. Indiana State falls to 1-3 overall and 0-1 in MVFC play.

The Panthers return home next week to take on the Illinois State Redbirds for homecoming. Kickoff is scheduled for 4 p.m. at the UNI-Dome.

Drake comes up short against Dayton


October 2nd, 2022 by Chris Parks

The Drake football team fell short of their first win of the season with a 27-14 loss at Dayton on Saturday.

Drake was able to get a score with only two seconds remaining in the first half to make it a 10-7 Dayton lead but that momentum didn’t carry over to the second half for the Bulldogs. Dayton scored with 5:06 left in the third to go up 17-7 and scored on a 17-yard run by Jake Chisolm before the end of the third to lead 24-7.

Dayton controlled the ball for the majority of the fourth quarter to ice the game. The Bulldogs did get a late 10-yard touchdown pass from Ian Corwin to Austin Flax but Dayton would recover the ensuing onside kick attempt to end the game.

Dayton improved to 3-1 overall and 1-0 in the PFL. Drake falls to 0-5 overall and 0-2 in the PFL.

Drake football will return home to Drake Stadium for Family Weekend against San Diego at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 8.

Special teams blunders cost Iowa State at Kansas


October 2nd, 2022 by Chris Parks

For Iowa State and Iowa the problem areas are clear, now the goal is to get them fixed. Special teams meltowns cost Iowa State at Kansas. The Cyclones fumbled a punt and freshman kicker Jace Gilbert missed three field goals, including a 37-yarder with 32 seconds remaining in a 14-11 loss.

That’s coach Matt Campbell who decided to go for the tying field goal instead of trying to keep the drive alive by converting on fourth down.

The Cyclones will be looking to bounce back when they host Kansas State.

Iowa still looking for offense after loss to Michigan


October 2nd, 2022 by Chris Parks

Iowa’s dreadful offense gave the Hawkeyes no chance against fourth ranked Michigan in a 27-14 loss in a game that was not even that close. The Hawkeyes had only 35 yards of rushing and their second touchdown came during garbage time with just a few seconds remaining. Despite that coach Kirk Ferentz says he saw progress.

Ferentz says as the receiver corps gets healthier the entire offense will get better.

Iowa visits an Illinois team that is coming off a lopsided win at Wisconsin.

Harlan rolls past Atlantic 54-7


September 30th, 2022 by Chris Parks

The Harlan Cyclones gave the crowd a happy homecoming with a 54-7 win over Atlantic on Friday night at Merrill Field. The Cyclones showed off why they are ranked first in Class 3A with a solid all around effort. Aiden Hall kickstarted the win by taking a screen pass in the left flat and scampering 57 yards for a touchdown on the first offensive play of the game.

The Cyclones would score on their next three offensive possessions to open up a 27-0 lead early in the second quarter. Those scores came on a Bradley Curren 3-yard run, a 7-yard pass from Teagon Kasperbauer to Cade Sears, and a 14 yard pass to Jacob Birch. Hall would add a 7-yard rushing score at the end of the half to make it 33-0 at the break.

The Cyclones would grab interceptions from Atlantic’s Tristan Hayes on the first two Trojan possessions of the second half. They converted both those picks into touchdowns; a 37-yard screen pass to Curren and a 3-yard run by Noah Schmitz. The Cyclones added a fumble return for a score late in the third to cap their scoring.

Atlantic avoided the shutout with a 2-yard rushing score by Dante Hedrington with :45 left in the game. The Trojans played the majority of the game without standout quarterback Caden Andersen, who left the game on the Trojan’s first drive after taking a hit along the sideline. He was slow to get up after the hit and did not return.

The Cyclones improved to 5-1 overall and 2-0 in 3A District 6. Harlan is now set for a top 5 showdown with undefeated ADM next week at Merrill Field.

Atlantic falls to 2-4 overall and 0-2 in 3A District 6. The Trojans will travel to Knoxville next Friday and we’ll have that game on KJAN.
