DES MOINES, Iowa (AP)—Mike Piatkowski threw for 214 yards and four touchdowns as Drake rolled to a 50-0 victory against Valparaiso on Saturday.

The Bulldogs (6-2, 4-1 Pioneer League) scored touchdowns on their first five possessions and returned an interception for another score en route to a 42-0 lead in the second quarter.

Piatkowski completed 16 of 23 passes. Trey Morse rushed for 60 yards and a touchdown on 17 carries.

Valparaiso (0-7, 0-4) was limited to 125 yards of offense.

The Bulldogs led 21-0 after Jake Underwood picked off an Eric Hoffman pass and returned it 65 yards for a touchdown.

That was the first of three consecutive first-quarter Crusaders drives that ended with a turnover. Drake did not need to drive far—27 and 42 yards, respectively—to cash in the other two takeaways.
