The FCS playoffs continue as Wofford heads to North Dakota State.

Jeremy Brevard-US PRESSWIRE

The NCAA Division I Championship playoff heads to Fargo, as the Wofford Terriers meet the North Dakota State Bison in the quarterfinals.

Wofford represents the epitome of a run-first team. Terriers' quarterbacks have attempted just 82 passes this season, understanding their weakness on offense. Instead, they've leaned on senior running back Eric Breitenstein, who hasn't let them down. Rushing for over 1,900 yards, and 19 touchdowns, Breitenstein is the heart of the Terriers' offense. On defense, this team has no problem rushing the passer, with a variety of defenders amassing 25 sacks on the year.

The one-loss Bison are led by junior quarterback Brock Jensen, who was named to the All-Missouri Valley conference team with a season where he completed 62 percent of his passes, for over 2,000 yards and 16 touchdowns. They boast an ever more impressive defense, with defensive end Cole Jirik totaling 7.5 sacks and 11 tackles for a loss.

Game time, TV channel: Saturday Dec. 8, 3 p.m. ESPN3
