FRISCO, Texas — North Dakota State’s 35-7 win over Towson in the FCS National Championship game at Toyota Stadium on Saturday seemed like a fitting ending to the Bison’s three years of dominance.
In fact, it was the end for the 24 seniors that will leave Fargo this spring and for head coach Craig Bohl, who will try his hand at Wyoming next season. All will leave with three national championship rings.
None of that means the Bison can’t return to Frisco in 2015 and win an unprecedented fourth straight FCS championship. No, the recruiting pipeline is clearly full and the elevation of defensive coordinator Chris Klieman to head coach should uphold the high standard that Bohl and his seniors have set.
But Saturday’s victory underscored just how special this three-year run has been for the Bison. For the first time during this three-year championship run NDSU went undefeated in a season.
“It’s one I’ll always remember,” NDSU senior quarterback Brock Jensen said. “It’s really special. It’s gets better every time you win it. I tried to soak it all in. It’s the last time I’ll put on a Bison jersey and it’s been a fun ride.”
Towson (13-3), making its first FCS National Championship game appearance, proved a game opponent for more than a quarter. But Towson’s mistakes, including a blocked field goal and a turnover, allowed the Bison (15-0) to take a 21-7 halftime lead. The Bison was never threatened after that.
