NDSU FOOTBALL
 
FARGO, N.D. (NDSU) – North Dakota State limited the nation’s leading rusher to 35 yards and the No. 2-seeded Bison defeated seventh-seeded East Tennessee State 27-3 in the quarterfinals of the NCAA Division I Football Championship on Saturday. NDSU (12-1) advanced to host No. 3 seed James Madison, which beat sixth-seeded Montana 28-6 on Friday night. The NDSU-JMU game will be rematch of the 2016 semifinal in Fargo, which remains the Bison’s only home loss in 12 FCS postseasons.
 
ETSU (11-2) managed only 66 net rushing yards with its dual 1,000-yard backs Quay Holmes and Jacob Saylors going for 35 and 34 yards, respectively. Quarterback Tyler Riddell went 16 of 32 passing for 92 yards as NDSU held a 401-165 advantage in total offense.
Safety Michael Tutsie made a team-high six tackles for North Dakota State and had two passes defended. His interception midway through the third quarter set up a Bison touchdown four plays later as NDSU built a 20-0 lead.
 
East Tennessee State’s only trip into the red zone came on the next possession after recovering their own punt that deflected off a Bison player. ETSU moved to the Bison 18 before a false start, stuffed run and two incompletions forced a 40-yard Tyler Keltner field goal.
 
TaMerik Williams rushed 15 times for 91 yards and two touchdowns to lead seven Bison ball carriers who combined for 278 yards on the ground and 5.7 yards per carry. Quarterback Cam Miller was 10 of 17 passing for 123 yards with completions to seven different receivers led by tight end Josh Babicz’s three receptions for 49 yards. The Bison are now 30-1 in the FCS playoffs.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) – Isaiah Davis ran for three touchdowns, Chris Oladokun and Jaxon Janke combined for two scores and South Dakota State used a big second half to defeat fifth-seeded Villanova 35-21 in the FCS quarterfinals. The Jackrabbits, the only unseeded team to reach the quarterfinals, will play the winner of top-seeded Sam Houston and eighth-seed Montana State in next week’s semifinals. Trailing 21-14 at halftime, the Jackrabbits tied the game on a 2-yard run by Davis to complete a 71-yard drive, then went ahead on Oladokun’s 38-yard strike to Janke late in the third quarter.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL-ARMY-NAVY

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) – If you’re going to have a 4-8 season, make sure one of those four wins is against your bitter rival. That’s what Navy just did by stifling Army in the second half of a 17-13 victory at the Meadowlands. Quarterback Tai Lavatai ran for two touchdowns and the Midshipmen limited the Cadets to 57-second-half yards and a season-low 232 overall. Christian Anderson scored on a 56-yard run on Army’s fourth play from scrimmage and Cole Talley added field goals of 31 and 32 yards, all in the first half. Army had won four of the previous five meetings. The Cadets are 8-4 heading into their bowl game.

NHL-NEWS

UNDATED (AP) – The NHL says it made the wrong call in disallowing what would have been the Buffalo Sabres’ tying goal in the final minute of a 2-1 loss to the New York Rangers Friday night. Senior executive vice president Colin Campbell says Victor Olofsson’s goal scored with 57 seconds remaining should have stood because video replays could not “definitively determine” whether the Sabres were offside entering the zone. The goal was disallowed after a replay showed Buffalo defenseman Rasmus Dahlin had crossed the blue line before the puck entered the zone. What review officials failed to take into account was whether Olofsson touched the puck before Rasmus Dahlin tagged up by getting his skate on the blue line.

 
In other NHL news:
 
– Stars goalie Ben Bishop’s career is over because of a degenerative condition in his right knee. General manager Jim Nill says Bishop took a conditioning assignment with the Texas Stars with the hope of returning to Dallas.
