ALLENDALE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Grand Valley State University beat Ferris State University 21-14 Saturday at Lubbers Stadium.

In one of the biggest rivalries in Division 2, the Lakers and the Bulldogs met for the second time this season. Last time they played, on Oct. 14, GVSU won the regular season battle 49-28.

On Saturday, the Lakers won again.

“It’s special, because they’re such a good football team,” Grand Valley Head Coach Scott Wooster said. “Just to advance and keep this football team together for one more week means everything in the world to me.”

The Bulldogs were without Head Coach Tony Annese Saturday: Annese was suspended for one postseason game after two players lit cigars in a smoke-free locker room.

Grand Valley will move forward in the playoffs, with the next game set for Nov. 25.
