North Dakota St. Beats #13 Iowa - Ranked #1 in FCS Polls

#1 pick Philadelphia Eagles

Team of Week - North Dakota St

North Dakota State’s 23-21 scored another huge win over a division one opponent when they beat #13 Iowa on Saturday in Iowa City. Bison fans are familiar with beating D1 programs. North Dakota State, a Football Championship Subdivision (used to be Division I-AA) power, has won six consecutive games against top-level opponents since 2010.

And the Bisons received a check for $500,000 for beating the ranked Hawkeyes on their home field.
North Dakota State has won five consecutive FCS titles and is top ranked again this season. They hope to match the FCS record for six consecutive titles held by Georgia Southern. They keep reloading every season despite losing top talent like QB Carson Wentz who lead the Bison for their most recent two titles. Wentz is currently a rookie starting QB for the 2-0 Philadelphia Eagles.

The Bison’s last five wins over Football Bowl Subdivision teams weren’t exactly powerhouses. Those opponents finished with combined records of 20-41. North Dakota State’s first two wins this season came in overtime, vs Charleston Southern and Eastern Washington. They continued their dramatics against Iowa. The Bison won on a 37-yard field goal by Cam Pedersen as time expired. North Dakota State beat Iowa at its own smash-mouth game, rushing for 239 yards and holding the Hawkeyes to just 34 yards in 25 carries.

In the meantime, QB Easton Stick, who guided the Bison to eight wins last season when Wentz was injured, ran his college career record to 11-0 by completing 11 of 19 passes for 124 yards and 1 TD and running for 35 yards.

Six league teams, led by top-10 spots by North Dakota State (1), Illinois State (5), UNI (9) and South Dakota State (9) are ranked in the three polls this week. Western Illinois (15) and Youngstown State (20) are also in the Top 25, while South Dakota and Southern Illinois received votes.

Four league teams (Illinois State, Missouri State, North Dakota State, Western Illinois) have started the season with 2-0 records. Only one team (South Dakota State, 3-0) started last year with an unblemished record after two contests. The last time the MVFC had four or more teams at 2-0 was in 2013, when five teams started the year with at least two-straight wins.

NDSU has been ranked in 82-straight top-25 regular-season polls, the league’s best active streak. The Bison hold the top spot in the FCS Coaches poll, the STATS FCS poll and the HERO Sports rankings.
