– Quarterback Brock Jensen scored on 1-yard runs in the second and fourth quarters and the North Dakota State defense did the rest as the Bison shut out South Dakota State 20-0 on Saturday before an announced crowd of 16,498, a stadium record.

Two-time defending national champion NDSU (4-0, 1-0) went into the Missouri Valley Conference opener for both teams ranked No. 1 in Football Championship Subdivision, and SDSU (3-2, 0-1) was No. 6.

John Crockett ran 14 yards for the other NDSU touchdown early in the fourth quarter, which put the Bison ahead 13-0. The ensuing point-after kick was blocked.

All three touchdowns came on drives just over half the length of the field, that took only seven or eight plays, and lasted under five minutes.

The Bison rushed 55 times for 262 yards. Sam Ojuri had 113 on 19 carries, Crockett 76 yards on 12, and Jensen 61 yards on 15. Jensen also completed 10 of 19 passes for 109 yards.

South Dakota State, meantime, couldn’t move the ball on the ground. The Jackrabbits had only 14 yards on 19 carries, or a minus-32 net counting seven sacks. Running back Zach Zenner, who was averaging an FCS-leading 185.5 yards per game, had 5 yards on eight carries.

So quarterback Austin Sumner and punter Ethan Sawyer were both busy.

Sumner completed 14 of 30 passes for 156 yards — but his longest completion only went for 22 yards and he was the victim on all the sacks. Sawyer averaged 43.7 yards on 10 punts.

The Jackrabbits had a nine-game home winning streak ended and were shut out at home for the first time since 1991.

North Dakota State now leads the Dakota Marker series 6-4, and will keep the traveling trophy for a fourth year.

Last season the Bison beat South Dakota State twice, 20-17 in Fargo and 28-3 in the second round of the FCS playoffs.
