Some poster over on Bisonville suggested that the FCS champion play the FBS champion. Yeah Right! Let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Alabama would murder NDSU, it wouldn't be close.
Terry Vandrovec, Argus Leader – As if being ranked No. 1, selling out every home game before the opener and winning the last two national championships hadn’t brought enough attention and credibility to the Bison.If there’s a team that can beat NDSU, I think that SDSU has a chance. The Jack Rabbits have the best running back in the FCS with Zach Zenner, who fan wild against UND (296 yards) and Nebraska (202 Yards). I am going to say that Nebraska’s defense is better than NDSU.
What’s more, this NDSU crew might be better than the last two – it’s certainly more experienced – and is bidding to join Appalachian State (2005-07) as the only programs to three-peat. So while this kind of run is not unprecedented in the FCS, it’s the first of its kind in the Upper Midwest.
Still, for all the swagger the Bison (3-0) display on the field they don’t want to talk dynasty – not publicly, not in the first month of this season and not with a showdown at No. 6 South Dakota State (3-1) set for Saturday. NDSU has decided against overtly chasing history.
“Complacency is something we’ve always been guarded against here,” NDSU coach Craig Bohl said. “Not only just recently, but North Dakota State has enjoyed a proud tradition for a long, long time. So we’ve been able to just gravitate back to some of our roots, which is great.”
