Rice, Wilkins lead Drake to 27-17 win over Dayton, end Flyers 12-game winning streak


DES MOINES, Iowa — Andy Rice passed for 215 yards and two touchdowns, and Conley Wilkins scored on a 60-yard run with less than two minutes left to send Drake to a 27-17 win over previously undefeated Dayton.

Drake (5-6, 4-4 Pioneer) got the ball back with 2:04 remaining when Dayton (10-1, 7-1) was unable to convert fourth-and-15. Wilkins, who scored two TDs, took the handoff on the next play and went up the middle for 60 of his 140 rushing yards.

Alex Jeske was 27 of 44 for 215 yards and an interception for the Flyers, who had won 12 straight games, the longest active FCS winning streak. Jeske scored on a 1-yard run to put an end to Drake's 21 straight points to start the game.

Drake held Dayton to just 2.3 yards per carry and scored four touchdowns despite not taking a snap in the red zone.
