FARGO, N.D. (NDSU) – The North Dakota State football team improved to 8-0 on the season with a 44-2 victory over Indiana State in the annual Trees Bowl game Saturday at Gate City Bank Field at the Fargodome. Kobe Johnson rushed for a career-high 155 yards including a 97-yard touchdown run in the second quarter, which was the longest run from scrimmage in NDSU history. Six different players found the end zone as the Bison rolled up 477 yards of total offense. Safety Michael Tutsie had a team-high eight tackles and linebacker Jackson Hankey made a goal-line stop on fourth down as the Bison held their opponent out of the end zone for the third time this year. Cornerback Marques Sigle recorded his first career interception. The victory kept second-ranked North Dakota State atop the Missouri Valley Football Conference with a 5-0 record heading into next week’s Dakota Marker game at South Dakota State. The Jackrabbits (6-2, 3-2 MVFC) beat Youngstown State 47-16.
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (UND) – No. 17 Missouri State (5-3, 4-2 MVFC) was on the ropes late but cashed in on turnovers to hold off an upset bid from North Dakota, 32-28, on Saturday afternoon. UND (3-5, 1-4 MVFC) averaged 6.2 yards per rush and 13.2 yards per pass compared to MSU averaging 4.8 yards per carry and 12.0 yards per play through the air, but a pair of fumbles late allowed MSU to survive in the final minutes. North Dakota held the ball for 32:48, while Missouri State had possession for 27:12. In total, MSU finished the day with 27 yards more of total offense (468-441) and held the advantage in turnovers (3-1).
Otis Weah led the Fighting Hawks offensively with 156 yards on 21 carries and three touchdowns. Isaiah Smith also spent time in the backfield, racking up 61 yards on 11 rushes. Tommy Schuster finished with 164 yards through the air on 13 completions. Quincy Vaughn threw one pass for a 21-yard touchdown, good for the first UND score of the game. Weah was the primary target with four receptions for 25 yards. Adam Zavalney racked up the most receiving yards with 54 yards while hauling in two receptions, including the 21-yard touchdown grab.
NASHVILLE (UND) – The Music City was playing the blues on Saturday night at Bridgestone Arena for most of the 14,659 fans, as No. 6 North Dakota dropped a 6-4 decision to Penn State in the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame Game from Nashville. Penn State (6-1-0) built a two-goal lead in the first period and never looked back, holding the advantage for the remainder of the game to capture the first win in the series between the two programs.
Former Minnesota defenseman Clayton Phillips, who played in the 2018 version of the contest between the Gophers and UND from Las Vegas, scored a pair of goals while Connor MacEachern also tallied a pair to help pace the Nittany Lions. PSU, who came in averaging over 40 shots on goal per game, was limited to just 23 total attempts on target, including 10 over the final 40 minutes.
UND (4-3-0) saw a three-point night from Riese Gaber and a pair of two-point outings from Jake Schmaltz and Ethan Frisch, chipping a two-goal deficit down to one on four-different occasions, but could not find the equalizer. Zach Driscoll turned aside 17 shots while Oskar Autio stopped 28 of the 32 thrown his way to earn the game’s third star. Connor Ford helped pace a UND squad that dominated in the face-off dot, winning 25 of his 37 attempts to help the Fighting Hawks claim 43 of the 72 draws.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Nikola Jokic had 26 points and 19 rebounds and the Denver Nuggets completed a late rally to win their 12th in a row against Minnesota, beating the Timberwolves 93-91. Monte Morris hit a layup to break an 89-all tie with 2:04 to play, and Jokic added a pair of free throws to give the Nuggets a four-point lead. Anthony Edwards hit layup with 31 seconds to play, and the Wolves got a final chance after Karl-Anthony Towns forced a turnover by Jokic. But Will Barton came up with a crucial block on Malik Beasley and Edwards missed a final attempt under the rim as the seconds ticked off.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – Dallas coach Mike McCarthy is making a familiar visit to Minnesota. His Cowboys are in first place with the NFL’s highest-scoring offense. They play the Vikings on Sunday in a prime-time game with a raucous crowd eager for a victory by the home team against a longtime nemesis. That was a familiar scenario for McCarthy over 13 years with the Green Bay Packers. He’s in his second season with the Cowboys. They’re off to a 5-1 start. The Vikings are 3-3. Both teams had a bye last week. Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott’s status is uncertain with a calf strain.



ATLANTA (AP) – The Atlanta Braves are within one victory of their first World Series crown since 1995. The Braves took a three-games-to-one lead by erasing a 2-0 deficit in a 3-2 win over the Astros. Houston led 2-1 in the seventh until Dansby Swanson and pinch-hitter Jorge Soler belted solo homers off Cristian Javier. The blasts came an inning after Austin Riley hit an RBI single to put the Braves on the board. Riley’s hit came shortly after Eddie Rosario doubled to become the first Atlanta player to get past first base. Jose Altuve’s solo homer put the Astros ahead by two in the fourth inning. Former No. 1 draft pick Kyle Wright turned in 4 2/3 innings of relief after surprise starter Dylan Lee retired only one hitter. The Braves can clinch the title at home on Sunday.



UNDATED (AP) – Michigan State and Michigan put together one of the most entertaining games in their century-old rivalry. The eighth-ranked Spartans trailed 30-14 before scoring 23 of the final 26 points in a 37-33 comeback over the No. 6 Wolverines. Kenneth Walker’s fifth touchdown of the afternoon was a 23-yard run that gave the Spartans a 37-33 lead with 5:08 remaining. Walker had three touchdowns over the final 22 minutes and finished with 197 yards rushing. Michigan State cornerback Charles Brantley sealed the victory by picking off a floating pass from Cade McNamara. McNamara threw for 383 yards and two touchdowns, but his interception was costly, as was freshman quarterback J.J. McCarthy’s lost fumble in the fourth quarter. Michigan State is unbeaten at 8-0. Michigan is 7-1.
