Bison Earn Share of Crown
FARGO, N.D. -- Sam Ojuri rushed for a touchdown, Brock Jensen threw a scoring pass to Kevin Vaadeland, and North Dakota State held South Dakota State to a season low in total offense Saturday in a 20-17 win that clinched at least a share of the Missouri Valley Football Conference title.
Adam Keller added a pair of field goals for NDSU (9-1, 6-1), including a 30-yarder in the third quarter that put the Bison ahead for good.
For the second-straight year, the NDSU Bison (6-1) will have at least a share of the title, as the Bison shared last year's crown with UNI. NDSU can win the title outright if it wins next weekend at Illinois State. Illinois State (5-2), meanwhile, can earn its second title in its history with a win against NDSU (the game will be on ESPN3 at 12 pm CT on Nov. 17). South Dakota State (5-2) and Indiana State (5-2) are also in the mix for a co-championship should Illinois State win.
