 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  It's easy to say North Dakota State winning another FCS national championship was fate, destiny, something supernatural. But don't. To help college football move toward the conclusion of its 150th season, North Dakota State fittingly beat James Madison 28-20 on Saturday while playing the 150th game of one of the greatest decades the sport has ever witnessed. Quite frankly, the Bison have taken "dynasty" by the horns and not relied on magical powers; they are the power in the FCS and create the magic. To cap the 2019 season under first-year coach Matt Entz, the first FCS program to finish 16-0 made it three straight national titles and eight in the final nine seasons of the decade. Their record was a gaudy 137-13 (.913), including an FCS-record 37-game winning streak since 2017.

Redshirt freshman Trey Lance, fresh off winning the Stats Perform FCS Walter Payton Award Friday night, was named the championship game's most outstanding player, carrying the ball 30 times for 166 yards, including a 44-yard touchdown scramble to open the fourth quarter, which made it 28-13. Still, the top-ranked Missouri Valley Conference champ had to hold on against James Madison (14-2) in the closing seconds. The Dukes, who stalked the Bison all season at No. 2, pulled within 28-20 on quarterback Ben DiNucci's second 5-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Riley Stapleton with 6:55 left. They got the ball back with just under three minutes to go and drove to the Bison 3 with eight seconds left, but safety James Hendricks intercepted DiNucci at the goal line to preserve the win. - AP College Football
