CHICAGO – Led by a pair of rushing touchdowns and 63 yards on the ground by senior running back Khary Ferguson (Indianapolis, Ind./Thomas More/Cardinal Ritter), the No. 16 ranked Saint Xavier University football team held on to stun No. 15 (NCAA Division II) University of Indianapolis, 19-14, Saturday night in SXU's home opener at Bruce R. Deaton Memorial Field in Chicago. The Cougar defense also played a large part in the victory holding the visiting Greyhounds to 296 yards of total offense and three turnovers (two fumbles, one interception). In last season's meeting at Key Stadium in Indianapolis, UIndy used a strong second half showing to pull away for a 51-20 victory. With Saturday's win, the Cougars improve to 2-0 on the year, while Indianapolis falls to 1-1.
