Pittsburg State football dominates UIndy, hits the road to Michigan in first-ever matchup

Ferris State hosting Davenport University on 11/19/2022

Pittsburg State football remained undefeated Saturday with a convincing 35-0 victory over the University of Indianapolis Saturday. The Gorillas are now 12-0 on the season, having outscored their opponents in their last four games 145 to 44.

PSU travels up to Big Rapids, Michigan, this week to take on the defending NCAA Division II National Champion Ferris State Bulldogs. Speaking with Pittsburg State football play-by-play announcer Eddie Lomshek Monday night on ESPN Radio 100.7 FM, head coach Brian Wright said he and his team take each game week by week.

"Eventually, if you want to get to the top, you're going to have to beat the top. Whether that's the second round or the final round, wherever you find yourself. Great opportunity for us; our guys are excited. Our guys are eager and ready to put a good week of work in."

The game will be the first-ever football match between the Gorillas and the Bulldogs. Last season, Ferris State completed an undefeated season, going 14-0, including a 58-17 route of Valdosta State in the championship game. It was the Bulldogs' first NCAA Division II football title. The Gorillas have won four; their last was in 2011.
