North Dakota finally finds end zone to take lead

FRISCO, Texas -- It took just over a half, but one national finalist finally managed a touchdown in the championship defensive struggle.

North Dakota quarterback Brock Jensen found Texas-native D.J. McNorton in the end zone on a 39-yard connection, two minutes into the third quarter.

The Bison surge comes from a herd of rushers, led by running back/punter Matt Voigtlander with 27 yards. McNorton follows right behind with 26 yards.

Sam Houston State is 3-for-13 on third down conversions, but has yet to come close to another score.

Brock is 8-for-18 for 114 yards to go with the passing touchdown.
