North Dakota State Picks Up Where it Left Off

Recommended Posts

o

 

Last year, North Dakota State not only won their 3rd consecutive I-AA National Championship ........

 

A) They blew out each and every playoff opponent (4-0) in the process.

B) They defeated a Division 1-A school that beat Michigan in a lower-tier bowl.

C) They finished the highest ranking ever for a 1-AA team, at # 29 in the AP poll.

North Dakota State finished the season at 15-0, including blowouts of all 4 playoff opponents and a win over Division I-A Kansas State (8-5), who beat Michigan in a lower-tier bowl game.

They were ranked # 35 in the AP poll and # 22 by Sagarin before the start of the I-A bowl games.

They probably won't get it, but they have an outside shot at becoming the first I-AA team ever (1978-present) to finish the season in the Top-25. If not, they will likely wind up being the highest ranked I-AA team ever, probably between # 26 and # 30.

Now, the Bison they picked up right where they left off, thumping Division I-A Iowa State on their homefield by a score of 34-14.

North Dakota State spotted the Cyclones 14 points before reeling off 34 unanswered points of their own, to win going away.

It was also their 5th consecutive win against Division I-A teams.

I've been saying for a year now that North Dakota should be moved up a division. Hell, put them in a lower BCS bowl this year against a D1 team (ACC,Big10, or something)and see how they do. They have been the big fish in the small pond for years, you figure the team would want to move up.

Although they actually lost a game earlier this year, which snapped their 33-game winning streak, North Dakota State's is playing tomorrow night in the I-AA semifinals.

They will be trying to win their 4th consecutive I-AA national championship.

Their overall record is 56-3 over the last 4 years.

They won tonight. It's pretty remarkable what they've accomplished.

Every year for the past few years they and their rather large, rabid fan base, takes over Frisco, TX (close to where I live) for a week. It's nuts at the local bars. They literally take them over.

I watched a little bit of the championship game and I was shocked by how loud their fans were. Pretty impressive for a I-AA team.

The Bison FINALLY had their string of 5 consecutive national championships stopped.

Their streak (2011-2015) is the longest consecutive national championship streak in college football ever at any level (Division I-A, Division 1-AA, Division II, and Division III.)

 

Since the advent of Division i-AA in 1977, North Dakota State became the only I-AA school ever to finish in the Division I-A rankings at season's end, finishing at #29 in 2013.

They also are currently riding a winning streak of 6 consecutive wins against Division I-A opponents, which is an all-time record for a Division I-AA school.

Ugggh.  Madison dropped a lot of passes.  They also had a big penalty on the first possession when ND State was punting that turned into a TD.  Frustrating game.
