INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -Butler held St. Joseph's (Ind.) to negative three rushing yards and scored a safety and three field goals to squeak past their Division II foe 11-8 on Saturday.
Senior Derek North led the Bulldogs to their first 3-0 start since 1991 by rushing for 101 yards on 23 carries.
Butler, which leads the Pioneer Football League in scoring and total offense, scored no touchdowns Saturday. Junior Jordan Quiroz hit field goals of 43, 32 and 26 yards.
St. Joseph's (0-3) lone touchdown came in the fourth quarter on a 24-yard fumble return by freshman David Wallace. Pumas quarterback Anthony Lindsey then threw to Victor Torres for the two-point conversion.
Lindsey was 27-of-48 for 235 yards passing. But he also threw two interceptions and was sacked seven times.
The Bulldogs started a stretch of three straight home games Saturday. Butler will host Missouri-Rolla Sept. 22 and San Diego on Sept. 29.
