Bison advance to FCS title tilt

Published 12/14/2012, The Jamestown Sun

FARGO (AP) — Brock Jensen scored on a 5-yard quarterback draw with 3 minutes left to rally North Dakota State to a 23-20 victory over Georgia Southern Friday night in the FCS semifinals. The defending champion Bison (13-1) advanced to the championship game Jan. 5 in Frisco, Texas, against the winner of Saturday’s semifinal between Sam Houston State and Eastern Washington. Jensen’s run came on a fourth-and-3 play and capped a 59-yard drive that was aided by a roughing-the-passer penalty on the Eagles. The Bison blocked a 50-yard field-goal attempt by Drew Ruggles with 34 seconds left. Ruggles was recently recruited off the Georgia Southern soccer team. Quarterback Jerick McKinnon rushed for 168 yards and a touchdown for Georgia Southern (10-4). He scored on a 25-yard run late in the third quarter to put the Eagles ahead 20-16 after the Bison roughed the punter in the Eagles end zone. Georgia Southern outgained NDSU 430-277 in total yardage.
