  • Updated: November 12, 2013 - 11:14 PM

North Dakota State senior linebacker Grant Olson likely will be out for the season after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

Olson, who played at Wayzata High School, is the leading tackler for the top-ranked team in the Championship Subdivision this season. He also led the team in 2012. Olson was injured in the second half of NDSU’s 28-10 victory over Illinois State on Saturday. The Bison (9-0) are seeking a third consecutive FCS title.

• Gophers freshman winger Hudson Fasching was named the Big Ten’s third star of the week. He had two goals in Minnesota’s 5-4 victory over Notre Dame last Saturday and one assist in the first game of the series. Ohio State junior forwards Tanner Fritz and Max McCormick were the first and second stars, respectively.

• Minnesota State goalie Cole Huggins was the WCHA’s rookie of the week. Huggins, of Centennial, Colo., stopped 42 shots in a 1-0 overtime victory over Bowling Green on Saturday. He also had nine saves in 1½ scoreless periods the night before.
