BROOKINGS, S.D. -- North Dakota State rushed for four touchdowns and Ryan Smith returned a punt 41 yards for a score as the Bison remained undefeated with a 38-14 victory over South Dakota State on Saturday.

Smith's return was part of a 21-point fourth quarter for North Dakota State (7-0, 4-0 Missouri Valley). The Bison had four 1-yard touchdown runs in the game -- two from quarterback Brock Jensen and one each from D.J. McNorton and Derrick Lang -- and 149 yards rushing as a team.

Jensen was also 20 of 25 passing for 178 yards.
