ND State defends FCS title in Sam Houston rematch
NO DAKOTA ST 39, SAM HOUSTON ST 13

By SCHUYLER DIXON
AP Sports Writer

FRISCO, Texas (AP) -- Quarterback Brock Jensen ran for three
touchdowns, Sam Ojuri scored twice and North Dakota State beat
Sam Houston State 39-13 in a title-game rematch Saturday for its
second straight FCS championship.



Jensen scored the go-ahead touchdown on a 1-yard sneak in the
third quarter, and Ojuri had a 2-yard TD run on fourth-and-1
after the Bison (14-1) got the ball with a fourth-down stop.



The Bearkats (11-4) had a 40-yard touchdown run by Tim Flanders
brought back by a holding penalty on the first possession of the
second half, and Brian Bell's second interception on the next
play led to Jensen's go-ahead score.



The Bison, who won 17-6 a year ago, improved to 10-1 in the FCS
playoffs with their eighth straight postseason win.



Ojuri had 92 yards rushing, and Jensen added 44 to go with 115
passing yards.



John Crockett had 80 yards rushing, 24 receiving and a 26-yard
pass to set up a score on a trick play after taking a
straight-ahead handoff.



Bell threw for 255 yards against the nation's best pass defense,
but had three of Sam Houston's four interceptions. Flanders, the
school's career rushing leader, was held to 53 yards on 19
carries, a 2.8 average.



It was tied at 10 when Flanders broke loose on an apparent
touchdown on the first possession of the second half. Instead,
Sam Houston had a third long run deep into Bison territory wiped
out by a holding penalty. None of the drives ended in points.



After the holding call on Flanders' run, Carlton Littlejohn
intercepted Bell's pass while falling to his knees, and the
turnover was upheld on review. Ojuri had 25 yards rushing on a
drive that ended with Jensen's score for a 17-10 lead.



The Bearkats were driving again when Bell had to throw the ball
away before getting slammed to the turf on fourth-and-1. He
stayed flat on his back and sat out parts of the fourth quarter.



Jensen's 31-yard pass to Zach Vraa set up Ojuri's fourth-down
run, and the Bison further deflated the Bearkats when they
turned a botched snap on the extra point into a 2-point
conversion and a 25-10 lead on a desperation pass from kicker
Adam Keller to Mike Hardie.



North Dakota State scored the first touchdown in the second
quarter by covering 65 yards on three running plays. Jensen ran
21 yards on third down after the field opened when Sam Houston
State's leading tackler, Darnell Taylor, crumpled to the ground
in front of him with an apparently leg injury. Ryan Smith ran 24
yards, and Jensen, who accounted for both touchdowns in last
year's game, scored from the 20.



The 72-yard drive came after Marcus Williams set a North Dakota
State record with his 17th career interception. Williams later
added his 18th.



Sam Houston State ended a championship game touchdown drought
just before it reached six quarters and tied the score at 10
when Bell threw a 1-yard pass to K.J. Williams with 33 seconds
left in the first half. A 30-yard toss to Richard Sincere put
the ball on the 1 three plays after an interception by Andre
Martin Jr. was wiped out when he was called for defensive
holding.



Crockett's career-long 57-yard run set up a 32-yard field goal
by Keller to give North Dakota State a first-quarter lead.
Miguel Antonio kicked a tying 38-yarder in the second quarter
after missing from 32 yards in the first.
