CLARION, Pa. - No. 29 ranked Clarion led 14-13 at halftime, and qb Connor Simmons broke the single season passing record, but the IUP running game combined with Clarion's offense being held to 53 total yards in the second half were too much to overcome as IUP defeated the Golden Eagles 28-14 in the PSAC-West showdown on Saturday afternoon.
Senior Day at Clarion's Memorial Stadium, with 19 Clarion seniors recognized in pre-game ceremonies, saw the golden Eagles drop to 7-2 overall and 4-2 in the West, while IUP raised its record to 6-2 overall and 5-1 in the West.
Delrece Williams, a Steel Valley graduate, had three catches for 44 yards and a touchdown.
