We can always find something to be thankful for, and there may be reasons why we ought to be thankful for even those dispensations which appear dark and frowning.

    ADISON, Wis. (UND) - North Dakota twice rallied from one goal down in the third period, including Shane Gersich's tying goal with 5:12 remaining, to escape from Wisconsin with a 2-2 overtime tie Saturday night and an unbeaten weekend.

    The fourth-ranked Fighting Hawks did not enjoy a lead all night and had to play a man short after junior forward Joel Janatuinen left the game with an injury. They didn't even win the exhibition shootout that followed overtime.

    Yet UND players and coaches were clearly pleased with being able to leave Madison with a win and a tie against the seventh-ranked Badgers, a weekend that gave the Fighting Hawks a 6-2-2 overall record heading back into National Collegiate Hockey Conference (NCHC) play next weekend.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
     BROOKINGS, S.D. (AP) - Taryn Christion threw for 329 yards and two touchdowns and ran for another score as South Dakota State handed North Dakota State its first loss of the season, 33-21, on Saturday in a clash of two top-10 FCS teams.
 
     Christion threw touchdown passes to Dallas Goedert, who had 116 yards receiving on seven catches, and Jacob Brown. Jake Wieneke had two catches for 59 yards that moved him past Jerry Rice and into third place all-time in FCS receiving yards at 4,730.
 
     Mikey Daniel's 5-yard run and Chase Vinatieri's second field goal of the game gave the Jackrabbits (7-2, 3-2 Missouri Valley Conference) a 27-14 lead after three quarters. Easton Stick's 11-yard run, coming two plays after a Jackrabbits fumble, cut the lead to 27-21 early in the fourth quarter but Goedert's 19-yard TD grab capped a nearly seven-minute drive to give South Dakota State insurance with 7:06 left.
 
     Stick threw for 229 yards and two touchdowns but also threw three interceptions. NDSU also lost two fumbles with the season-high five turnovers leading to 17 points. Despite the loss, the Bison (8-1, 5-1) remain atop the Missouri Valley Conference.
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     CEDAR CITY, Utah (AP) - Jay Green scored on three short runs and Southern Utah ran its win streak to five straight, pulling away from North Dakota in the second half to secure a 47-21 Big Sky Conference victory Saturday night.
 
     Southern Utah (7-2, 5-1) is tied with Weber State and Northern Arizona atop the conference standings with two games remaining, but owns a win over the Wildcats and host the Lumberjacks in the season finale.  Southern Utah now is 13-1 at home over the last three seasons.
 
     James Felila capped a 14-play, 75-yard opening drive with a 1-yard run to give Southern Utah a 7-0 lead. After forcing the Hawks to punt on their opening drive the Thunderbirds marched 89 yards in seven plays, with Green punching in from the 1.
 
     Keaton Studsrud got North Dakota (3-7, 2-5) within a touchdown, 27-21 to start the second half, but no closer.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Karl-Anthony Towns had 31 points and 12 rebounds, Andrew Wiggins added 23 points on 9-for-14 shooting and the Minnesota Timberwolves beat the floundering Dallas Mavericks 112-99 on Saturday night for their first four-game winning streak in nearly five years.
 
     Holding Mavericks star Harrison Barnes scoreless in the second half, the Wolves enjoyed a blowout for once after the margin of their previous five victories totaled just 17 points. The last time they won four games in a row was Dec. 7-15, 2012, when Towns was just a junior in high school.
 
     Coming off a career-low two points Wednesday at New Orleans, when foul trouble against bulwarks DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis limited him to 22 minutes, Towns responded like the Timberwolves needed him to and thought he would. He had seven points and two rebounds during a 13-0 run late in the third quarter that pushed their lead to 25 points.
 
     Barnes finished with 17 points for the Mavericks, who have the worst record in the NBA and their first 1-10 start since the 1993-94 season when they staggered out of the gate at 1-23 and finished 13-69 in coach Quinn Buckner's only year on the job.
 
     With franchise cornerstone Dirk Nowitzki not the same as his younger self, they've been relying heavily on their bounty of point guards. Dennis Smith Jr. had 18 points and Devin Harris (15 points) and J.J. Barea (14 points) provided a few sparks off the bench, but there's just not enough production to be found. The Mavericks entered the game with the third-lowest scoring average in the league.
 
     The Wolves improved to 6-1 with linchpin Jimmy Butler on the floor, having lost both games the tenacious, versatile small forward missed with a virus, but the upside to this one was that they won with minimal impact from their offseason headliner acquisition. Butler averaged 21.3 points over the previous three games, but the player getting the third-most minutes per night in the NBA was able to rest more than usual down the stretch with the Wolves in command from the middle of the first quarter on.
 
     Butler finished with a season-low four points in 34 minutes.
 
     Taj Gibson picked up some slack with 12 points and 10 rebounds, and Jeff Teague had 11 points and 10 assists. The reserves, playing as a five-man unit for long stretches, contributed often, too. Nemanja Bjelica and Tyus Jones each sank a pair of 3-pointers in the second quarter. Jamal Crawford used a shake-and-bake move for a 20-foot pull-up jumper he swished for a 90-62 lead that was the largest of the game for the Wolves.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Artem Anisimov scored a power-play goal with 5:42 left in the third period, and the Chicago Blackhawks beat the Minnesota Wild 2-0 on Saturday night.
 
     Corey Crawford made 24 saves for his second straight shutout as the Blackhawks won their second straight after three straight losses.
 
     Devan Dubnyk stopped 33 shots for Minnesota, which finished a season-long six-game homestand 3-3-0.
 
     With Minnesota's Luke Kunin serving a double-minor for high-sticking, Duncan Keith's shot from just inside the blue line was deflected in front by Anisimov just past the halfway point of the man advantage.
 
     Anisimov has scored in four straight games, including two power-play goals.
 
     Alex DeBrincat added an empty-net goal for the second straight game.
 
     Crawford, who entered the night with a 1.92 goals-against average (fourth-best in the league) and .941 save percentage (third-best), made his best stop early in the third when he got his glove up to thwart a breakaway by Eric Staal. He stacked the pads to stop Jared Spurgeon a short time later on another breakaway.
 
     Crawford also came out to stop Mikko Koivu with the left pad, seconds before Jan Rutta cleared a loose puck out of the Chicago crease.
 
     His strong play has been needed. After hitting double digits on opening night, the Blackhawks have scored 33 goals in 13 games, yet have gone 6-5-2.
 
     Both teams missed by inches in the first period.
 
     Chicago's Richard Panik hit the crossbar 13 minutes in, and a redirect from Nino Niederreiter during a late Wild power play bounced off the post, off the far leg of Crawford as he struggled to get back into position and out of harm's way as the goal horn incorrectly sounded.
 
     DeBrincat hit the post on a 2-on-1 with Panik early in the second.

     UNDATED (AP) - Third-ranked Ohio State may have seen its national championship hopes go up in smoke on Saturday.
 
     Nate Stanley threw for 226 yards and five touchdowns as unranked Iowa clobbered the Buckeyes 55-24. The Hawkeyes raced out to a 31-17 halftime lead on a pair of Stanley TD passes to Noah Fant.
 
     Josh Jackson picked off three passes for the 6-3 Hawkeyes, who are 4-1 in their last five home games against top-5 opponents.
 
     J.T. Barrett threw a career-high four interceptions as Ohio State dropped to 7-2 overall. It was the most points allowed by Ohio State under coach Urban Meyer.
 
     There was another upset in Big Ten play as Matt Coghlin kicked a 34-yard field goal as time expired to give 24th-rated Michigan State a 27-24 victory over No. 7 Penn State. Brian Lewerke threw for 400 yards and two touchdowns for the 7-2 Spartans, who were aided by a roughing-the-passer penalty that put them in field goal position on the final possession.
 
     It was the second straight tough loss for the Nittany Lions, who had to endure a 3 1/2-hour delay because of severe weather in the second quarter.
 
     In other top 25 games:
 
     - Jalen Hurts passed for a touchdown and ran for a score before top-ranked Alabama shut down LSU's offense in the fourth quarter of a 24-10 win against the 19th-ranked Tigers. The two teams combined for 15 punts and 10 sacks, six by the Crimson Tide.

     - Tavien Feaster ran for an 89-yard touchdown to end the third quarter and K'Von Wallace picked off Ryan Finley on the game's final play to help No. 6 Clemson hold off No. 20 North Carolina State 38-31. The 8-1 Tigers intercepted Finley three times but didn't take their first lead until the third period.
 
     - Baker Mayfield passed for a school-record 598 yards as No. 8 Oklahoma outscored No. 11 Oklahoma State 62-52. Marquise Brown caught nine passes for a school-record 265 yards, including TD grabs of 84 and 77 yards as the Sooners moved to 8-1.
 
     - Ninth-ranked Miami is 8-0 after Malik Rosier threw for two touchdown and ran for another in a 28-10 dismantling of No. 13 Virginia tech. Braxton Berrios and Christopher Herndon IV had touchdown catches as the Hurricanes extended the nation's longest current winning streak to 13 games.
 
     - Kyle Hicks ran for two touchdowns and No. 10 TCU rebounded from its only loss by stifling Texas 24-7. Darius Anderson ran for 99 yards for the Horned Frogs, including a 31-yard TD run on a fourth-and-1 play with just over 4 minutes left in the game.
 
     - Dante Pettis became the NCAA's all-time leader in punt return touchdowns and had a 47-yard TD reception to highlight 12th-ranked Washington's 38-3 pounding of Oregon. Pettis' ninth career touchdown return was a 64-yard scamper that sparked the blowout.
 
     - Will Grier threw two touchdown passes and Justin Crawford broke out of a three-game slump with 102 yards rushing in West Virginia's 20-16 win over No. 14 Iowa State. Grier finished 20 of 25 for 316 yards, his eighth 300-yard performance of the season.
 
     - McKenzie Milton threw a touchdown pass and ran for a score as 15th-ranked UCF knocked off SMU 31-24 to stay unbeaten at 8-0. Adrian Killins Jr. rushed for two more touchdowns for the Knights, who didn't score the win until Trey Quinn dropped a pass on four-and-3 deep in UCF territory with about five minutes remaining.
