Flyer Sophomore’s 268 Yards Rushing Is Second-Most In Flyer Football History

MOREHEAD, Ky. – The University of Dayton used a potent ground game to defeat Morehead State 49-35 today on the road.  Sophomore running back Jake Chisholm carried the ball 35 times for 268 yards and two touchdowns to pace the Flyers.  Chisholm’s 268 yards is the second-biggest rushing game by a Flyer running back, trailing only Connor Kacsor’s 301 yards against Georgetown (DC) in the 2014 season opener.

Dayton is now 5-3 overall and tied for third in the Pioneer Football League with a 3-2 PFL record.


1ST QUARTER – Dayton 28, Morehead State 7

•    Dayton opened the game with a 78-yard drive all on the ground that was finished off with a 45-yard rush by Jack Cook.

•    After a stop, the Flyers scored again on a 41-yard pass from Cook to Ryan Skibinski to take a 14-0 lead just five minutes into the game.

•    Morehead State answered quickly with a 47-yard passing touchdown to cut the lead to 14-7 with 7:53 left in the quarter.

•    Skibinski scored his second touchdown on a 10-yard rush to give the Flyers a 21-7 lead with 3:35 left in the first quarter.

•    A third touchdown for Ryan Skibinski on a 20-yard pass from Cook extended the lead 28-7.

•    The Flyers had 243 yards in the first half.


2ND QUARTER – Dayton 35, Morehead State 14

•    Morehead State opened the second quarter with an 11-yard touchdown pass.

•    Cook scored his fourth touchdown of the day on an 11-yard touchdown run. Dayton led 35-14 with 6:46 left in the half.


3RD QUARTER – Dayton 42, Morehead State 28

•    After neither team scored on their first possession of the half, Morehead State took advantage of a short field after an interception to drive 37 yards for a score.  Issiah Aguero scored on a one-yard run.

•    The Flyers answered by giving the ball to Jake Chisholm eight straight times to drive 61 yards.  The final 13 were Chisholm’s first TD of the day.

•    Morehead State came right back with a 75-yard drive, the bulk of which came on a 51-yard TD pass from quarterback Mark Pappas to Landon Hurst.


4TH QUARTER – Dayton 49, Morehead State 35

•    Chisholm had 43 yards on the first play of a drive that began in the third quarter, and scored his second TD of the day from 10 yards out.

•    The Eagles got another touchdown run from Aguero to make it a 14-point game (49-35) on its next series.

•    But after 84 points in the first 50 minutes of the game, neither team scored in the last 10. Dayton kept the ball for six-and-a-half minutes before punting it back to MSU.  Morehead ran 14 plays and moved the ball 77 yards, but Zach Rumpke tipped a pass on fourth-and-goal to stop the last threat of the game.



•    After gaining 117 yards on 17 carries last week in his first career start, Jake Chisholm blew both numbers out of the water with 32 rushes for 268 yards.  Only Connor Kacsor ran for more yards in a single game in a Dayton uniform (Kacsor had 301 yards on Sept. 6, 2014 in the year’s season opener against the Georgetown Hoyas).

•   Chisholm also returned a pair of kickoffs for 58 yards and caught one pass for 12, giving him 338 all-purpose yards on the afternoon.

•    Chisholm’s 7.7 yards per carry average was actually third-best on the day for UD, thanks to the work of the Flyer offensive line – Tim Roell, Dom Sciaretti, Nick Bart, Michael Niese, Jacob Brunson and Justin Karem.

•    Quarterback Jack Cook only threw the ball 14 times, but gained 88 yards on 11 carries with two TD runs.

•    Ryan Skibinski ran the ball three times for 31 yards.  He also caught a pair of passes for 61 yards.  He only had five touches on the day but scored three times.  Both of his receptions were for touchdowns, along with a 10-yard TD run.

•    Safety Brandon Easterling led UD with 14 tackles (7 solo).

•    Matt Clifford was next in tackles, with eight, and he also added an interception and pass broken up.

•    Zach Rumpke also had an interception and pass break up.

•    Defensive tackle Kyle Finnick made his first career start and chipped in 1.5 sacks.

•    Punter Allen Waltz made the most of his two punts. Averaging 40 yard per and putting both inside the 20-yard-line.



•    Dayton returns home to face Marist on Saturday, Nov. 9 at Welcome Stadium.
