HILLSDALE — Saginaw Valley State University’s No.1-ranked defense allowed Hillsdale one trip inside the 20-yard line, allowing a 35-yard field goal as the only score during a 24-3 victory Saturday that keeps it atop the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference standings at 4-0.
SVSU now has given up 16 points in four games, including field goals in each of the last three. The only touchdown of the season came in the opener when Northwood scored a third-quarter TD on a 21-yard pass.
SVSU senior linebacker John DiGiorgio set a new career school record with 369 tackles, registering 12 stops, including two sacks, as the Cardinals limited the Chargers to 220 yards of offense.
