Bison receiver Shepherd hits rare 'home run' against James Madison defense

The North Dakota State Dynasty is as Strong as Ever

The North Dakota State Dynasty is as Strong as Ever

The James Madison Dukes had an ugly first half of the FCS Championship against North Dakota State on Saturday.

JMU head coach Mike Houston says, "There are great players individually on both sides of the football, but I think the thing that stands out is that both units play so well together.I think it's going to be hard-hitting, extremely physical, and probably in the teens".

Fans are in "a fight right now for every ticket that's out there", Houston said.

After holding North Dakota State to a three-and-out out of halftime, James Madison got the last score of the game after an eight-play, 33-yard touchdown drive to start the second half. Their résumés in the past half-dozen years include the two longest winning streaks in FCS. The Bison have forced 33 turnovers this season. His second-seeded team held a four-point lead and hadn't trailed since the opening kick, and a mental lapse, in a game that had already been topsy-turvy, would have given No. 1 James Madison another shot at victory.

The two best defenses in FCS squared off, so it's no surprise that both teams fell short of 300 yards total offense.

"We've got a bunch of warriors and a bunch of winners in that locker room", Bison coach Chris Klieman said after the game.

The proposal by Customs and Border Protection calls for 505 kilometres of additional barrier by September 2027. Construction of the U.S. -Mexico border wall was a key campaign promise of Trump's .

"We've won the sixth national champions in seven years, Klieman said". Senior Bryan Schor is 29-3 in his career with the Dukes. "I'm so proud of them". "Offensive line protected really well. Just happy to get back here". "Not many teams hit a home run on those guys".

Thanks in part to the three-week break between the semifinals and finals, some of those injured players could see action Saturday.

The Bison would runout the final 58 seconds of the clock for the championship. DeLuca returned to NDSU after losing most of last season to an injury.

One person happy to be taking in Bison fans is Robert Verich, an owner and general manager of Tight Ends Sports Bar and Grill, a 450-seat watering hole in Plano with 42 TVs and 118 employees. "And they wanted to leave a legacy, and they left a legacy for the 2017 Bison".

"If you take the busiest day we've ever had, it doesn't compare to when the Bison are here", Verich said. "Imagine having a week where you can double your income for everybody".
