Previous 15 Notes |Back to Page One| Next 15 Notes


  Just three days after the only game of the fall, NDSU quarterback Trey Lance says he's going to enter the 2021 NFL Draft. This is the first time in FCS history that a redshirt sophomore quarterback is leaving early to go pro. Trey told Yahoo Sports today about his decision to head to the National Football League. Lance lead NDSU to 17 straight wins as the starting QB. He leaves with 30 touchdown passes and only one interception which happened on Saturday. - WFYR TV Fox News, West Dakota

  While Trey Lance is the headliner for North Dakota State's lone football game this fall, the quarterback's top protector will have his moment on stage Saturday when the Bison meet Central Arkansas in the Fargodome. Dillon Radunz, a senior left tackle from Becker, Minn., will play his only game of the 2020-21 campaign before skipping the Bison's eight-game Missouri Valley Conference spring schedule to prepare for the NFL draft. He's doing so with no regrets. "I feel good with where I'm at and the decisions I'm making," said Radunz, a two-year starter for the three-time defending FCS champions. "I don't think I'm losing out on much because I still have this Bison family...Yeah, it'd be awesome to play more games with these guys, but it's part of God's plan and part of the way things ended up being." Radunz is a 6-6, 299-pound blocker who didn't allow a sack last year on his way to consensus FCS All-America honors. Dubbed by Becker coach Dwight Lundeen as the best player he's coached in his 50-year career, Radunz has the attention of NFL scouts, and Jim Nagy, executive director of the Senior Bowl, believes he has first-round potential. Nagy tweeted that Radunz would be his first choice among non-quarterbacks in the 2021 draft. - Star Tribune

  Trey Lance threw for two touchdowns, ran for two more and three-time FCS defending champion North Dakota State rallied with a 21-point fourth quarter to beat Central Arkansas 39-28 on Saturday. The Bison's lone fall game was a de facto audition for Lance, judged to be a potential first-round pick if the redshirt sophomore declares for the NFL Draft. As last season's Walter Payton Award winner, he threw for 28 touchdowns with no interceptions in 287 attempts but that run ended Saturday when he was picked by Nick Nakawaasah in the third quarter, which led to Breylin Smith's TD toss to Lujuan Winningham and a 20-18 Bears lead. In the fourth quarter, Lance ran for a score and, after Smith and Winningham connected for another TD, threw to Hunter Luepke for a 32-28 lead.

Luepke added the final points on a 13-yard run with under two minutes remaining. Lance rushed for 143 yards on 15 carries and was 15-of-30 passing for 149 yards. Smith was 25 of 38 for 226 yards, three scores and two interceptions. The victory extended the Bison's win streak to 38, the longest in FCS history, and home win streak to 29, the longest active run in Division I. They will take part in the Missouri Valley Football Conference's spring season with an eye on winning a 17th national championship. Central Arkansas (2-1) opted out of a potential spring season with the Southland Conference and is playing a 10-game schedule this fall. The Bears were conference co-champs with Nicholls State last season. - North Dakota State/AP College Football

  North Dakota State director of athletics Matt Larsen and head football coach Matt Entz announced Monday, Aug. 24, the Bison football team will play one non-conference game to cap the 2020 fall practice schedule. NDSU will host Central Arkansas at 2:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 3, in the first meeting between the two schools. It is the beginning of a three-game contract that includes games in Fargo on Sept. 16, 2023, and Conway, Ark., on Sept. 20, 2025. The Bears, who play in the Southland Conference, have won 35 games and made three NCAA FCS playoff appearances in the past four seasons. Larsen said NDSU's goal was to maximize opportunities to play games after the Missouri Valley Football Conference Presidents Council voted to move the conference schedule to the spring and allow schools, at their discretion, to play non-conference games this fall. - North Dakota State Football
