Davidson clinches PFL title downing Drake 45-14

DAVIDSON, N.C. (AP) — Aris Hilliard ran for 133 yards and two touchdowns and Davidson clinched its second straight Pioneer Football League title with a 45-14 win over Drake on Saturday.

Davidson (8-2, 7-1) finished tied with San Diego atop the standings, but Davidson holds the tiebreaker advantage via its 28-16 win over the Toreros on Sept. 25. The Wildcats will learn their FCS playoff fate during Sunday’s selection show.

Davidson won the PFL title in the abbreviated spring season earlier this year.

On the third play from scrimmage, Hilliard raced for a 67-yard touchdown run. After Eli Turner Jr., scored on a 20-yard run at the 9:11 mark of the first quarter, the Wildcats held at least a two-score lead the rest of the way.

It was 21-0 after Louis Colosimo’s 19-yard touchdown pass to Jackson Sherrard with 1:24 to play in the first quarter, and 24-0 after Caden Bonoffski’s 26-yard field goal.

Ian Corwin threw for a 117 yards and a touchdown for Drake (2-8, 1-7).
