VALPARAISO, Ind. (AP) Freshman Braden Contreras pulled in the winning touchdown pass, getting a foot down in the corner of the end zone with 25 seconds left as Valparaiso upended San Diego 20-19 in a season finale on Saturday.
It was Valparaiso's (4-2, 4-2 Pioneer Football League) first win over San Diego (4-2, 4-2) since 2003.
The loss foiled the Toreros hopes for a share of their fourth straight and twelfth overall PFL championship. Davidson had already locked up the PFL's automatic bid into the FCS playoffs with a win over San Diego.
