Derek Fulton threw for 291 yards and Brady Roland had 173 yards receiving as Grand View of the NAIA upset Drake of the FCS 21-16 Thursday night at Drake Stadium.
The Vikings are the first NAIA school since 1980 and sixth overall to defeat an FBS or Division I program.
Grand View grabbed momentum early when Fulton hit Roland for a 70-yard touchdown on the second play of the game.
Leading 21-10 late in the third quarter, Grand View held off a Drake fourth quarter rally that included a 24-yard touchdown pass from Andy Rice to Michael Hudson and a blocked field goal by the Bulldogs to keep the margin at five.
Drake had the ball with two minutes remaining but failed to convert on fourth down at midfield, giving the Vikings their first win in four tries over the Bulldogs.
Rice completed 26 of 50 attempts for 273 yards.
