FCS quarterfinal-round playoff preview capsule: Samford at North Dakota State

(Stats Perform) - A strong case can be made for an upset in three of the four FCS quarterfinals this weekend, but a Samford win at North Dakota State Friday night would surely be one of the bigger surprises in the 45-year playoff history.

NDSU, the defending FCS champion and a winner of nine national titles since 2011, is appearing in a national quarterfinal for the 13th consecutive season. Samford has reached the final eight for the second time, and it's been 31 years since the first appearance.

Following is a capsule preview of the Samford-NDSU quarterfinal:
