VALPARAISO, Ind. (AP) Grant Kraemer threw for three touchdowns, running back Conley Wilkins passed for a score and ran for another, and a late interception helped Drake hold off Valparaiso 35-21 on Saturday.

Kraemer was 17 of 31 for 236 yards passing and helped Drake (3-3, 2-1 Patriot) to a 28-14 halftime lead with 3- and 6-yard TD passes to Eric Saubert and a 19-yarder to Keegan Gallery.

Wilkins threw one pass, an 18-yard TD strike to Zach Zlabis, and rushed for 205 yards on 37 carries.

Drake had a 28-21 lead with 5:18 to play when Jimmy Seewald threw a long pass that was intercepted by Jabari Butler. The Bulldogs scored eight plays later on Wilkins' 8-yard run.

Joey Diaz-Martinez intercepted a second-quarter pass by Kraemer and returned it 49 yards for a score and Valparaiso (2-4, 1-2) converted a fumble by Kraemer into a score with Seewald's 14-yard TD pass to Frank Catrine in the third quarter.
