#5 Georgia Southern @ #1 North Dakota State, 2012

Rate this Entry
In just over an hour, the rematch will be seen in the Fargodome. A capacity crowd is again expected inside this facility and likely the sound will be the loudest it has been all season as well.

I expect a much closer game than what was seen last year with a 35-7 NDSU win.

The Eagle offense will be able to move the ball at times in this game, I beleive. The Georgia Southern defense is where I see the question marks.

Ball control will likely be in the minds of both teams and believe NDSU will likely try to run the ball a little more than in the past and not allow quarterback Brock Jensen to beat them with another interception return for a touchdown. But I feel NDSU will have to throw it a little bit to keep the Eagle defense offguard.

Like my preview earlier this week, I feel NDSU will pull this one out but will be close. This game likely will go to the final quarter and it will not be a 28 point win this year for the Bison.

I can't wait for the opening kickoff in this one.

    The Eagle punt is fielded by Christian Dudzik and the Eagles are flagged for a late hit so NDSU will have great field position.

    The Bison will take over 1st & 10 from their own 47 after the flag is marked off.

    2nd & 8 at the GSU 10. Jensen throws it away.

    3rd & 8 at the GSU 10. Jensen keeps it for 5.

    4th & 3 at the GSU 5. NDSU calls its 2nd time out so it looks like the Bison will go for it. We have 3:10 left in the game.

    4th & 3 at the GSU 5. Jensen with the keeper up the middle for the 5 yard touchdown. And GSU has a personal foul call that will be placed on the kickoff.

    Huge drive for Jensen.

    PAT is good.

    NDSU leads by three. NDSU 23 GSU 20 with 3:05 left.

    The Eagles now have to win it with no time outs. Field goal kicking is not someting GSU does well.

    The kickoff goes out of the end zone so it will be 1st & 10 at the GSU 25.

    hahaha maybe GSU will get a heart-stopping field goal
