NDSU claims its eighth national championship

FRISCO, Texas (AP) – North Dakota State has captured its eighth FCS national championship in nine years.

Redshirt freshman quarterback Trey Lance ran for 166 yards, including a clutch 44-yard touchdown to start the fourth quarter of the Bison’s 28-20 win over James Madison. James Hendricks preserved the victory with an interception at the goal line in the final seconds for the 16-0 Bison.

North Dakota State stretched its FCS-record winning streak to 37 in a row and completed the first 16-win season in any division since Yale in 1894.
