The Cyclones jumped out to a 14-0 lead and then the Bison received an 80-yard run by John Crockett and the Bison imposed their will for the rest of the game, scoring 34 unanswered points in front of a sellout crowd of 54,800. ND State rushed for 299 yards with an entirely new offensive line and racked up over 500 yards total. The surprising thing here is that 12 starters from the Bison championship team last year are gone as well as most of the coaching staff that went to Wyoming.
Next up is Weber State in Ogden, Utah next Saturday. The reigning kings of the FCS look strong out of the gate. It is possible for a 4-peat if things fall right.
