The North Dakota State Bison started their day with as much fanfare as you can get in College football. With ESPN College GameDay hosting their weekly live show from the streets of Fargo, it was the Bison's chance to win a game they were expected to win, with the Nation watching.
The Herd struck first at 7:02 of the first quarter when Senior quarterback Brock Jensen found wide receiver Ryan Smith for the four yard touchdown. Smith had five receptions today for a total of 40 yards and the one touchdown.
The Bison didn't stop there though. Jensen showed off his arm to visiting Delaware State when he found Zach Vraa in the end zone for a 25 yard touchdown pass. The highlight reel worthy score would be Vraa's solo touchdown of the game. Jensen connected with Vraa six times today for 71 yards.
Delaware State is a team that relies a lot on the passing game and there is nothing better Minneapolis native Marcus Williams like more. He would pick off the Hornets and return it 33 yards for his sixth career pick-six. With that he is now tied for the FCS record for most interceptions returned for touchdowns.
Jensen wasn't done slinging yet though as he would find fifth year senior Cooper Wahlo in the end zone for a 22 yard touchdown in the second quarter. The score marks Wahlo's first collegian touchdown reception and would put the Bison up 34-0 over Delaware State.
Jensen is pulled from that point. He finished the day going 13-for-20 with zero interceptions and 138 yards passing. Carson Wentz takes over under center for the Bison and goes 10-for-13 on the day with 105 yards passing.
Today's win marks number 92 for head coach Craig Bohl. With the win he becomes NDSU's most winningest coach in program history. He surpassed Rocky Hager today, who went 91-25-1 (.782) in 10 season from 1987-96.
