Bison Win 6th Division 1 Football Title

NDSU Veterans Share Thoughts on Return to Frisco

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. NDSU also ended JMU's 26-game winning streak and bid to repeat as national champions.

The Bison limited James Madison to 241 yards on 62 plays, allowing one touchdown. "[I'm] so excited for an opportunity to compete with those guys one more time".

One element organizers were particularly proud of are videos made with and for the Bison fans, with appreciation messages from several of the players and coach Chris Klieman.

Despite being the No. 1 team in every national poll every week of the season, the Dukes haven't been favored in a game since their quarterfinal win over Weber State. NDSU took over at the JMU 41-yard line, and after advancing to the JMU 19-yard line on six plays, junior kicker Cam Pedersen knocked a 32-yard field goal in between the posts to extend NDSU's lead to 17-3. They're 14-0 and have barely trailed this season. "You can tell they play a lot of snaps", Stick said of JMU's secondary.

"This matchup is exciting for the rest of the country, but it's exciting for us as well", Schor said at Thursday's media day.

After showing flashes of excellence in the third quarter, the Dukes' reverted to their sloppy style of play from the first half in the fourth quarter.

- NDSU was held scoreless in the second half. D'Angelo Amos returned a punt 33 yards to the NDSU 33-yard line. The Bison then ran out the final 58 seconds.

"It's a tremendous honor to be here representing James Madison University and the CAA", JMU head coach Mike Houston said.

"We're looking to take our title back", NDSU safety Tre Dempsey said. The Bison's first drive notably showcased the return of junior running back Lance Dunn - arguably NDSU's most lethal offensive threat, who hadn't played since October 21.

Still, James Madison looked like it had an opportunity to take the lead late after NDSU missed its own field goal with 4:37 remaining in the game.

The Bison continued to prevent big plays, rough up Schor (four sacks, twice as many scrambles), and keep JMU from moving the ball much on the ground. "Field goals don't beat you and that's what we tried to do".

NDSU - Easton Stick was 13-for-22 with 130 yards and 1 touchdown.

Quarterback Bryan Schor (33 total touchdowns) leads the Dukes' eighth-ranked scoring offense (35.9 points per game) that's gotten a major boost from running back Marcus Marshall and wide receiver Riley Stapleton this postseason. To add insult to injury, a fight broke out after the play and JMU was taxed with a 15-yard penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct. "You would think it's going to be a defensive battle, a little bit, but both teams, offensively, have some explosive players".
