MOREHEAD, Ky. -- Austin Gahafer led a 17-play, 84-yard game-winning drive, capped with a 4-yard touchdown pass to Jake Raymond with 22 seconds left, and Morehead State won its 10th straight over Valparaiso on Saturday, 29-26.
The Eagles (2-3, 1-1 Pioneer) converted two fourth downs on the drive before facing third-and-goal. Raymond, lined up in the right slot, started straight and veered right once he neared the end line, and Gahafer put it on him for the winning score.
Gahafer passed for 308 yards and two touchdowns. Raymond finished with 10 receptions for 149 yards.
The Eagles led 14-7 after two scoring runs in the first quarter, but Valparaiso got a Clarke touchdown pass to Jean Rene and two field goals to lead 20-14. Gahafer threw a 52-yard pass to Darius Pritchett to put the Eagles back in front.
