NDSU drubs UND
FARGO, N.D. — North Dakota State held North Dakota without a first down for more than 40 minutes and cruised to a 34-9 victory in the first football game between the longtime rivals in 12 years.
Carson Wentz threw four touchdown passes for the Bison (2-1), including a pair to RJ Urzendowski. North Dakota State spotted North Dakota a field goal to start the game and then reeled off 34 unanswered points.
The Bison finished with a 377- 61 advantage in total yardage and 21-3 edge in first downs.
North Dakota (2-1) did not get a first down until 4:45 remained in the third quarter.
The rivalry was the longest series in Division II football when it ended in 2003 after NDSU decided to move up to Division I and UND stayed put. UND went D-I in 2008.
