College Football: Doane defeats Concordia in Kickers Battle | College of Sports

The Tigers advanced 9-7 late in the third after losing 13 yards on the drive, hitting Mayer again from 45 yards. Concordia (0-1) finally answered five minutes into the first half. The Bulldogs went 63 yards in 13 plays and Ty Harold finished the lead with a 28-yard field goal. Harold missed one kick in the first and one dam in the second quarter.
