Big Rapids, Mich. – The nationally second-ranked Ferris State Bulldogs stayed unbeaten on the year as FSU ran away with a 62-28 triumph over Central Washington in the NCAA Division II Showcase National Game of the Week on Saturday (Sept. 14) night at Tomlinson Stadium in Ellensburg, Wash.
The Bulldogs built a 34-14 third quarter lead before the Wildcats rallied back to pull within a score at 34-28 early in the fourth quarter.
