The Anchor-Bone Classic was anything but classic for the Bulldogs as they were trounced 41-0 at Top Taggart Field on Saturday by the top-ranked Lakers.
Grand Valley took the ball up-and-down the field the entire contest as it piled up 503 yards of total offense. The Bulldog offense was shut down by the Lakers all day, as Ferris tallied 118 yards for the entire game.
The offense was also hindered when starting junior quarterback Tom Schneider was knocked out of the game at the end of the first half with an injury and did not return.
Grand Valley kept the Bulldog defense on the field for most of the game, as it converted 10 of 14 third-down conversions while also scoring on 6 of 7 red zone scoring chances.
Ferris has lost two straight contests after previously building a five-game winning streak. The Bulldogs fall to 5-3 overall and 5-2 in conference play.
The Lakers sit atop the GLIAC standings with the win, while Ferris slides into a three-way tie for third in the conference.
The Bulldogs return to action with an Oct. 30 contest at Indianapolis University.
