Montana State Bobcats (12-3)


NDSU wins 9th FCS title in 11 years 38-10 over Montana State

FRISCO, Texas (AP) — North Dakota State began practice more than a year ago for an unprecedented spring season that ended without a championship. Things felt much more normal for the Bison this time.

Hunter Luepke ran for three touchdowns in the first half, plowing over a defender going into the end zone on the first one, and North Dakota State won its ninth FCS national title in 11 seasons with a 38-10 win over Montana State on Saturday.

"Everything went our way," Luepke said. "Everything we drew up happened."
