North Dakota State won the FCS Championship on Saturday, besting Sam Houston State, 39-13.
The North Dakota State Bison walked all over Sam Houston State on Saturday, winning the FCS Championship, 39-13. Brock Jensen scored on three rushing touchdowns, two of them coming from one yard out and one being a 20-yard scamper in the second quarter.
North Dakota State got things started off slow with a 32-yard field goal in the first quarter, and Sam Houston State responded with one of their own. When Jensen went for that 20-yard touchdown, the Bearkats responded with one of their own, as well.
But that's when things got out of hand.
Jensen and Sam Ojuri put up rushing touchdowns for the Bison in the third quarter to go up 25-10, and another field goal was all the Bearkats were able to manage before the Bison scored two more touchdowns in the fourth for insurance, though it was hardly necessary.
In all, the Bison managed to put up 300 yards rushing on the ground, while Jensen managed to avoid mistakes in the passing game with 115 yards and no touchdowns and no interceptions. Brian Bell, on the other hand, threw for 255 yards for the Bearkats, but had three interceptions. Chris Grett attempted three passes, and two of them were intercepted.
It was simply domination from the second half onward for the Bison.
