Lang with a nice sweep to the left for an 11 yard gain and another NDSU 1st down.
1st & 10 from the YSU 46--Jensen with a 46 yard pass to Vraa on a flee flicker play that worked to perfection.

2nd & 7 from the NDSU 28. Jensen with a deep pass try to Vraa but goes incomplete.
3rd & 7. Key 3rd down. Trevor Gebhart with a nice catch and nice throw by Jensen to the NDSU 43.
Kickoff goes deep into the end zone and is downed. NDSU will have it 1st & 10 at their own 25 to start this drive.
Key drive for the Penguins on the past drive to tie the game in my opinion. A stop there would have inspired the NDSU crowd and defense further.
Let's see what NDSU does when they have to go the length of the field.
2nd & goal from the NDSU 3. Cook gets stuffed at the line but lunges forward to the 1.

Jamaine Cook fumbles the first play from scrimmage and NDSU recovers at the YSU 31. NDSU takes over under a very quite Dome now.
Demond Hymes returns to opening kick to their own 26.
We are ready to go. The Dome is rocking now in anticipation for the opening kickoff. Actually, NDSU likely would have defered if they won the toss so this actually plays exactly what they would want.
Youngstown State wins the coin toss and will receive the opening kickoff.
Jensen kneels down and the final seconds tick off.
NORTH DAKOTA STATE 33 NORTHERN IOWA 21.
This sets up quite the meeting in Fargo next week between Youngstown State and NDSU.
The onsides kick is bobbled but NDSU recovers it. One kneel down should do it.
