North Dakota State wins eighth FCS title


The North Dakota State football team finished the first 16-0 season in modern college football history with a 28-20 victory over No. 2-ranked James Madison University in the Division I FCS Championship game Saturday afternoon.

Next Season - The Bison will be the team to beat again nationally and will bring their FCS-record 37-game winning streak into a September 5 opener at Oregon.

As the Fargo Forum reports, Safety James Hendricks intercepted a pass in the end zone in the last 10 seconds and the Bison topped James Madison University 28-20 at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas. North Dakota State went up 28-13 when Lance took off for a 44-yard touchdown run at the start of the third quarter. The 16-win season has been a premiere for college football in every division since Yale won 16 games in 1894. Hendricks, who earlier had a 20-yard touchdown run on a fake field goal, then picked off the pass by Ben DiNucci.

Give them three weeks to prepare for the FCS championship game and give them the national title.
