Indian Football Opens With a Win

Now that’s more like it.

The Indians overcame an 11-point halftime deficit to storm back with 34 unanswered points in the second half to smash Bucknell 43-20. Junior running back Nick Schwieger rumbled to 216 yards and two touchdowns in the first season opening victory Dartmouth has had since 2005 when the Indians defeated Colgate 26-21 in Hanover.

The Indians are 1-0 and go up against 8th ranked University of New Hampshire Sacred Heart next in the home opener. Wah-hoo-wah!
