1980 Playoffs

Stagg Bowl VIII
Dayton 63, Ithaca 0

Dec. 6, 1980, in Phenix City, Ala.

Dayton took advantage of seven Ithaca turnovers to breeze to a 63-0 victory. Dayton jumped to a 28-0 lead at halftime as four Ithaca mistakes gave the Flyers excellent field position.

Dayton started its four first-half touchdown drives at Ithaca's 36-, 22-, 8- and 31-yard lines.

After a scoreless third quarter, Dayton erupted for five touchdowns in the final period. Three of the five scores followed interceptions by the Flyer defense.

Ithaca, the defending champion, never generated any offense as the Bombers crossed midfield only two times. The Bombers had four interceptions, three fumbles and punted four times in their 14 possessions.

Gradlin Pruitt, Jon Vorpe and Greg Bazany each scored twice for the Flyers, who rolled up 356 yards of total offense, 293 of them on the ground.
