Not sure if this was posted on the board previously. A friend showed me an article written by Jim Duncan about 1922 team (and 1920s) which City View re-published in August 2016.
In 1922, the 7-0 Drake football team surprised the nation

"Arguably, the most important change happened in 1986 when the school chose to no longer award athletic scholarships to its football players. "


The decision to drop the entire football team, scholarships and all, was made in 1985.

Paul Morrison used to say that the '85 win over Iowa State rallied support for football to the extent that the administration decided to start a D-III program the following season.

33 years later, it seems the rematch has given Bulldog football another boost in support.

Had to laugh at the reference to the "Big Four Series."  Not only did Drake not play Iowa State Teachers College in 1922, but the BFS didn't exist.  It was created nearly 90 years later, and only for men's basketball.
