PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Division III Ursinus College Bears have emerged a force this season in the Centennial Conference.
The Bears are 4-0 (3-0 in the conference) as they prepare to visit Moravian on Saturday.
Now hopes were high for the Bears coming into the season, and head coach Peter Gallagher says a key to success has been a couple of aspects of their game that they knew had to come up big for them to be successful.
“Talking in the preseason,” Gallagher tells KYW Newsradio. “The first thing we said is that we needed to be able to stop the run and be able to run the ball. And those are two things that we are doing pretty well right now.”
The Bears defense is holding opponents to just under 109 yards a game and just 3.6 yards a carry. On offense, the Bears rushing attack is keyed by senior Jason Golderer, a Bishop McDevitt product. In four games this season, he has rushed for 573 yards and five touchdowns.
