Huge roughing the kicker call on NDSU to keep the Eagle drive going. NDSU would have had it deep in Eagle territory with the lead had that foul not occured.
The NDSU offense now has to respond.
That McKinnon is something special, another TD and his 7th straight 100 yard game
1st & 15 at the NDSU 25. McKinnon keeps it and scores from 25 yards out on the ground.
PAT is blocked but made its way through the uprights.
Georgia Southern 20 North Dakota State 16 with 5:02 left in the 3rd qtr.
That time out might cost the Eagles later as this game looks like it will go down to the wire.
1st & 10 at the NDSU 20. False start call sends the Eagles back 5.
1st & 15 at the NDSU 25. The play clock wound down and GSU is forced to call a TO.
another big PASS play (you read that right, PASS) by the Eagles for 42
1st & 10 at the GSU 31. Tray Butler for three on the pitch sweep.
2nd & 7 at the GSU 34. Bryant for four.
3rd & 3 at the GSU 37. Bryant is wide open on the pass play and he is all the way down to the NDSU 20.
GSU grinding again on offense after the penalty
1st & 10 at the GSU 21. Swope gets six on the dive.
2nd & 4 at the GSU 27. Swope for another dive for four and an Eagle first down.
That's a great start for the Bison
1st & 10 at the GSU 15. Swope gets just two up the middle on the option dive.
2nd & 8 at the GSU 17. Jonathan Bryant for two on the pitch.
3rd & 6 at the GSU 19. Sack of the other qb Youyoute by Carton Littlejohn.
But there is a roughing the kicker call on NDSU--huge call for both teams.
The NDSU kickoff is taken at the goal line and the NDSU kick coverage was there. GSU will start at their own 15.
Expect the crowd to really be in the game now. Huge drive upcoming for the Eagles.
1st & 10 at the NDSU 41. Ojuri gets six on the run up the middle.
2nd & 4 at the NDSU 47. Ojuri for a huge run up the middle and he takes it all the way for the NDSU touchdown--53 yard gain.
PAT is good.
NDSU takes their first lead.
NDSU 16 GSU 13 with 10:42 left in the 3rd qtr.
1st & 10 at the NDSU 47. McKinnon gets 5 up the middle.
2nd & 5 at the NDSU 42. False start on the Eagles.
2nd & 10 at the NDSU 47. McKinnon hit hard and fumbles the ball. HUGE PLAY for the Bison.
1st & 10 at the GSU 35. McKinnon gets just three on the option keeper.
2nd & 7 at the GSU 38. McKinnon keeps it again for four.
3rd & 3 at the GSU 42. False start on GSU. Huge foul there.
3rd & 8 at the GSU 37. McKinnon with a big play on a misdirection fake pitch for a 16 yard gain.
it was 14-7 NDSU in last year's game at the half and then the Bison rushing game pounded the Eagles en route to a 35-7 win... we'll see this year.
The NDSU kickoff is returned well out to their own 35.
This opening drive will be key to the outcome in my opinion.
I am kind of surprised NDSU is stalling so much / being denied on offense. The GSU defense is better this year but NDSU better make some adjustments to move the ball better. Penalties have helped their O too much and they need to gain some chunks.
