North Dakota State earns football, financial respect

  • Road to Frisco: Thursday update in Texas and the Seth Wilson spotlight

Top-seeded and defending champion James Madison (14-0) and the No. 2-seeded Bison (13-1) will square off Saturday for the Football Championship Subdivision title in a matchup of the dominant FCS programs with well-traveled contingents.

That setup a first down at the Bison 29-yard line for the Dukes, however the Bison defense would answer once again.

"We've got a bunch of warriors and a bunch of winners in that locker room", Bison coach Chris Klieman said after the game. The Dukes are now riding a 26-game winning streak.

Dukes coach Mike Houston has described the quest for tickets as a contest in itself. Both teams pound the ground. But Bryan Schor's desperation throw to the end zone on fourth-and-16 fell incomplete with 58 seconds left. Quarterback Easton Stick completed 13 of 22 passes for 130 yards and a touchdown, while Bruce Anderson rushed for 63 yards and a touchdown. "Probably the best we've seen all year, and it's going to be a great competition".

Stick, the game's Most Outstanding Player, stuck to his word, and the following celebration was a familiar sight for fans in Frisco: North Dakota State has won six of the last seven FCS national championships, making North Texas somewhat of a second home.

North Dakota State got on the board first in the game with a 3-yard touchdown run from Anderson, followed by a 31-yard field goal by James Madison's Ethan Ratke to bring the score to 7-3.

"Oh no doubt", says Houston. "And they wanted to leave a legacy, and they left a legacy for the 2017 Bison. There's no doubt. And we're excited about it too". I know this: our guys are excited to come back and play in the national championship.

"Such a big moment, just a lot of ups and downs this season, but it's just so special to have that play happen", said Shepherd, who is from Blue Springs, Mo.

James Madison couldn't overcome the deficit because the mistakes that helped put the Dukes behind kept happening.

"We talk about it all the time: Field goals won't beat you, and it didn't today", Klieman said.

Kickoff is set for Saturday at 10 a.m. on ESPN2 from the outskirts of Dallas in Frisco, Texas.
