The gamble pays off 🏃♂️💨
NDSU brought out the fake field goal during the FCS Championship game!
#ndsu had a QB who won an FCS record 48 starts & replaced him with a QB who became the 2nd player taken in the NFL draft, & replaced him with a QB who won a now record 49 starts, & replaced him with a QB who was named the best offensive player in FCS as a freshman #QBU
#FargoToFrisco2020 💚🏆💛 The NDSU football team has defeated James Madison University to win the FCS National Championship in Frisco, Texas.
Way to make history and congratulations on an outstanding season. 16-0 🤘 We are so proud of our team! #NDSUtrue #FCSChampionship https://t.co/JOFjBUiFNi
Since 2011... 8 losses... 129 wins... 8 National Championships.. we are THEE most prestigious program in college football history. There will never EVER be another NDSU. Wow.
Here's how many interceptions NDSU *Freshman* QB Trey Lance threw during a perfect 16-0 season, as told by his next opponent in September:
"This was supposed to be a rebuilding year..."
NDSU Head Coach Matt Entz said it best 🤘
Put it on the board!
DiNucci finds Riley Stapleton for the 5-yard touchdown! The Dukes used 17-plays, to travel 86-yards for the game's opening score!
7:27 1Q | JMU 7, NDSU 0

Now that Coach Fleck has given program a bit of a lift I think the time has arrived for Gophers to challenge NDSU again.
Remember this name: Trey Lance
NDSU freshman quarterback is one of the most talented young QBs I have scouted. He’s putting on a show right now in the #FCSChampionship
This kid is going to be special. He’s my QB1 for the 2022 draft class #GoBison https://t.co/rFBVUDYFC9
I also see it's the annual "why didn't Minnesota offer XYZ NDSU player" day
Of course NDSU has a Freshman QB from MN who has thrown 29 TDs and 0 INTS.
NDSU — the real college football dynasty.
NDSU — National Champions! Again!!!!!!!!
No, Ben. NDSU was better and beat you. Period. Outphysical? The Bison rushed for 281 yards. The Dukes had 161 yards rushing. And the only number that matters ..

Wow! It never gets old and we never take these opportunities for granted! Another incredible week in Frisco TX. Could not be more proud of @NDSU @NDSU
football on another championship season. 🏆 FCS Champs! #WalterPaytonAward #JerryRiceAward https://t.co/mrMojg21FQ
NDSU winning the title in a perfect season with a freshman QB who didn’t throw an interception... means see you in 2025 for any intrigue at the FCS level.
harassing the MRD’s after the game today was the most unsportsmanlike action i’ve ever seen. NDSU all i have to say is one thing, fuck your football team.
No lock draft picks, but several with a realistic NFL shot. #FCS
JMU: EDGE Ron'Dell Carter, EDGE John Daka, QB Ben DiNucci, CB Rashad Robinson, WR Brandon Polk
NDSU: EDGE Derrek Tuszka, RG Zack Johnson, TE Ben Ellefson, *LB Jabril Cox, *WR Christian Watson (*Underclassmen) https://t.co/V8s1uRphPA
That’s Reusse plan: NDSU vs. Gophers every season. One yr, Gophs home team at TCF Bank, Bison get 100G stipend. Next yr, Bison home team at Zygi, split the gate 50-50. https://t.co/X5yz7GsTTK
Canadian college football has their own equivalent of NDSU in Laval. Laval played in 11 Vanier Cups in 16 years and won 9 of the 11.
August 27, 2019: “Lance is the next big thing at quarterback for NDSU. Not next year, not two years from now, or three years in the future. Right now. He will be explosive, electric, throw in any other superlative of your choice.” https://t.co/BUxGU6dG9r

I've loved watching North Dakota St. play football for a long time. Their blocking schemes are simple & precise. 8th National Championship in 9 years. James Madison & NDSU really with a nice rivalry. Another great year by the Dukes.
It was a great, close game, but in the end #JMU players feel they just made too many mistakes in a loss to #NDSU Saturday afternoon in the #FCSNationalChampionship
LIVE postgame coverage from Frisco is coming your way tonight at 6 on @WHSVnews
Throwback to my burrito-eatin’, siiiidline kiss-stealin’, Tecmo dominatin’ days at James Madison... JMU vs the NDSU BITCHES... Go DUUUUUUKES!!!! https://t.co/Wddh8SSYGf

Hendricks' pick to seal it was his 14th career INT, moving him into 5th alone on NDSU's all-time list. The only *safeties* ahead of him are the guys who mentored him - Rob Grimsley and Tre Dempsey.
Learn from greats, become great. The power of tradition in college football.
