Steidl, Bison to compete for FCS Title

Steidl, Bison to compete for FCS Title”

North Dakota State and Robbie Grimsley, a 2015 graduate of Hutchinson High School, play in the NCAA Division I Football Championship Game on Saturday against James Madison.

-- On Friday night, January 5, Dom Izzo and Jeff Kolpack will host "Fargo to Frisco", a TV special from 6:30-7 p.m. carried live on statewide television on WDAY, WDAZ, KBMY and KMCY.

Klieman said Frisco "feels like home" to the Bison, who are making their sixth trip to the Football Championship Subdivision title game in seven years.

Maybe that is what will get the Dukes past the Bison, because when Houston sizes up NDSU, he sees a team with the same strengths: physical defense, powerful run game, dependable special teams. Their opponent is top-seeded, defending champion James Madison.

For the second straight year, James Madison will have to get through powerhouse North Dakota State to claim a national championship.

The Bison (13-1) have cruised by an average margin of 36 points in the playoffs, perhaps with their eyes on a rematch. The NDSU junior is a defensive tackle on the Bison squad that has only given up 11.5 points per game this season. "You go to the game, tailgating it's all Bison fans everywhere", said Adam Bell, who is in Frisco for the third time. "That's no question, both quarterbacks in this game are like that".

DEFENSE FIRST: James Madison leads the nation in scoring defense, and North Dakota State is second. The Dukes were heavy underdogs in the win.

Although, Duke running back, Marcus Marshall is playing his best football when it matters the most, coming off of back to back games with two rushing touchdowns each, but what you don't see in the box score, is the emotional weight he is carrying from his teammates. "We got a group of guys to go with so I'm excited for it", said Croy Goehner, who is in Frisco for the first time.

ANOTHER WENTZ: Carson Wentz's younger brother, Connor Wentz, is a senior tight end for the Bison. The Senior Bowl invitee had three sacks, a forced fumble and an interception in the first two playoff games.
