  Kobe Johnson ran for 114 yards and a touchdown and three-time FCS defending champion North Dakota State beat Youngstown State 25-7 on Sunday to start its spring season. The Bison extended their winning streak to 39, the longest in FCS history, and home streak to 30, 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.

North Dakota State (2-0, 1-0) beat Central Arkansas 39-28 in the Bison’s lone fall game on Oct. 3, which featured the final game in the career of redshirt sophomore Trey Lance. Lance, who declared for the NFL Draft, is expected to be a high, first-round pick on April 29. Absent Lance, the Bison used a stout running game to control the line of scrimmage and a stingy defense on the opposite side of the ball. - North Dakota State/AP College Football

  Virginia Tech coach Justin Fuente announced that backup quarterback Quincy Patterson has entered the transfer portal. The only other player to enter the transfer portal during the off week was receiver Darryle Simmons. Fuente attributed the timing of Patterson's decision - Tech has two games left to go in the regular season - to a hand injury he suffered against Pittsburgh. Patterson couldn't grip a football last week and likely wouldn't have been available to play this week against Clemson.

While Fuente normally doesn't say much about players leaving the program, he went out of his way to praise Patterson on Monday before taking any questions. "I just want to publicly thank Quincy for his time here," Fuente said. "Just a fantastic young man. He played a vital role in our football team. Quincy knows how I feel about him and his folks. We stand ready to help him in anyway we can moving forward. I'm sure when the news hits his phone will be blowing up with a lot of people trying to find out about him and our phones will be blowing up too. We'll have nothing but great things to say about him moving forward. I look forward to watching him play and watching him get on the field on a more consistent basis." - Roanoke Times

  Virginia Tech backup quarterback Quincy Patterson has decided to transfer. Coach Justin Fuente made the announcement Monday, shortly before Patterson confirmed his decision in a Twitter post. "Through thought, prayer and countless discussions with my parents and other important people in my life, I felt it was in my best interest to enter my name in the transfer portal," Patterson said in the tweet. "Despite the weird timing, my decision wasn’t made hastily." Fuente said he and Patterson have had numerous conversations with the redshirt sophomore about his future. "I just want to publicly thank Quincy for his time here. Just a fantastic young man," Fuente said Monday. "He played a vital role in our football team. Quincy knows how I feel about him and his folks. We stand ready to help him in any way we can moving forward." He said Patterson wants a chance to play more, and is certain he will have numerous suitors. - AP College Football

  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

  Quincy Patterson II came off the bench to throw two touchdown passes and run for another score, leading No. 20 Virginia Tech to a 45-24 victory over NC State on Saturday night. Despite playing without 23 players and four coaches because of coronavirus issues and injuries - including starting quarterback Hendon Hooker - the Hokies (1-0, 1-0 ACC) started quickly in a season opener delayed two weeks because of two COVID-related postponements. Virginia Tech took advantage of an NC State defense missing three starters who were out with injuries,by speeding to a 17-0 lead.

Patterson, the Hokies' No. 3 quarterback, entered the game in the second quarter after starter Braxton Burmeister left with a hand injury. Patterson threw touchdown passes of 15 yards to Tayvion Robinson and 16 yards to James Mitchell on the Hokies' final two possessions of the first half. He also scored on a 1-yard run in the fourth quarter. Khalil Herbert ran for 104 yards and a score for Virginia Tech, which rushed for 315 yards. Devin Leary threw for 165 yards and a score for the Wolfpack (1-1, 1-1). - Virginia Tech/AP College Football
