NDSU kicks off another squib kick and KSU fields to the KSU 30.
I think NDSU has a pretty good shot to win this one but as mentioned, this first drive will be key to both teams. I am ready for this second half to start.
This is about what I thought this game would go with a rather defensive struggle.
KSU leads the halftime stats with a total of 167 yards to NDSU's 148. NDSU leads the turnover battle with a +1 and should have the lead on this one but missed the Keller FG.
