The long pass from Bell goes too long and SHSU will be forced to punt at their own 6.
Flanders gets four to the 6 to set up a 3rd & 5.
You can hear the Bison crowd and it causes a SHSU false start. Half yard penalty. Bell just keeps it up the middle for a yard to set up a 2nd & 9
We have 4:30 left in the third quarter. SHSU so far has not done what they normally do in the third quarter. We will see if they can dig themselves out of the hole at their own 1 now.
The third down pass looks like it should have been pass inference but goes uncalled.
The Bison punt sends the Bearkats back to the 1 yard line as NDSU downs it there.
Like I mentioned, special teams will be huge. So far, I would say NDSU has won this battle.
McNorton gets just two on two plays to set up a 3rd & 8 for the Bison at their own 46.
Ojuri with a big 15 yard run to start the Bison drive.
Flanders gets just one on 3rd down. And NDSU's defense comes up big on 4th down.
Mark that play by Cole Jirik tacking Flanders. HUGE momentum changer.
Flanders gets eight on a nice swing pass from Bell. Another big third down play though at 3rd & 2.
Diller with a catch for 10 to the NDSU 38. It was video replayed and confirmed and I couldn't see anything on the replay that would overturn it either.
Huge fourth down conversion for the Bearkats there as Flanders just got over the line.
Flanders gets just one on 3rd down and one on fourth down to get a first down for the Bearkats.
Flanders gets five to set up a 3rd & 2 from the SHSU 48. Another key play here.
Sincere is running the Wild Bearkat to begin the SHSU drive and gets three.
The NDSU kick goes out of bounds. The Bearkats will have great field possession at their own 40.
SHSU will have a key drive here now. The Bearkats have been key in the third quarter with the exception of their semi-final win over Montana (just three points).
I think they need to get Flanders involved as he should very good promise in the prior 2nd qtr drives.
McNorton on the screen pass from Jensen and the Bison blockers down field send him into the endzone. Jastram's PAT is good.
NDSU 10 SHSU 6 with 12:47 left in the 3rd qtr.
That fake punt was huge to change the momentum.
SHSU blitz causes Jensen's pass to sail incomplete.
Voightlander with the punt fake of 27 yards to keep NDSU with the ball at the SHSU 39. He was a RB for the first three years of his career.
McNorton gets a nice gain of six on first down but Ojuri gets nothing on second down. Key 3rd & for for NDSU here.
Williams returns to the NDSU 28.
