FARGO, N.D. (AP) – Quarterback Cam Miller ran for two scores, TaMerik Williams tallied 112 yards rushing and two scoring runs and second-seeded North Dakota State was never threatened in a 38-7 win on Saturday in the second round of the FCS playoffs.
North Dakota State (11-1) didn’t need late heroics in its commanding performance establishing a 10-0 lead after the first quarter when Miller ran it in from the 9-yard line to complete a nine-play, 83-yard drive. Jake Reinholz then kicked a 20-yard field goal with 1:58 left in the first. Nic Baker threw a 22-yard touchdown pass,to Landon Lenoir six seconds into the second and the Salukis (8-5) were within three. But the Bison established two sustained scoring drives that broke Southern Illinois’ will.
The Bison used 13 plays to go 65 yards and Williams’ 1-yard plunge with 7:45 before halftime made it 17-7. Following the Salukis’ three-and-out that generated no yardage, North Dakota then stomped out 11 plays in 63 yards and made it 24-7 when Miller ran it in from the 5 at the two-minute warning. Baker threw for 220 yards.
North Dakota State advanced to the FCS quarterfinals for the 12th straight year, where the Bison (11-1) will face No. 7 seed East Tennessee State. The Buccaneers (11-1) rallied from a 14-point deficit in the final 90 seconds to beat Kennesaw State 32-31 in the second round.
