North Dakota State Owns The Big 12

By Cheval John

Is it safe to say that North Dakota State has the Big 12’s number?

It seems like it after the three-time FCS National Champions knocked off Iowa State 34-14 in Ames, Iowa.

The Bison are now 5-1 against Big 12 teams and are 8-3 overall against FBS teams.

Their most notable victory came against the defending Big 12 champion Kansas State by the score of 24-21 in their 2013 season opener.

The Bison drove down the field on a 18 play, 80-yard drive that was capped by a game-winning 1-yard touchdown run by quarterback Brock Jensen.

That drive chewed up 8 1/2 minutes of the clock in the fourth quarter.

Iowa State were aware of the Bison and had scored twice to make it 14-0.

However, they could not stop North Dakota State as they scored 34 unanswered points in order to pull out the win.

The way how the Bison are playing, they will not have trouble playing against FBS teams on a regular basis if they make the transition from the FCS to the FBS.

Until that day happens, the Bison will remain one of the most dominant teams in the FCS.

Let’s hope that Iowa will be ready for the Bison in 2016.
