That would be a lead NDSU never relinquished, despite adding no points in the third quarter. The Bison added another touchdown and gave up one to JMU in the final quarter.

Solid defense in the final minutes of the game gave NDSU the 28-20 win as they intercepted the Dukes at the goal line to end what could have been a game-tying drive for James Madison.

The Bison have now won three straight FCS championships, and eight of the last nine.
