FARGO, N.D. -- D.J. McNorton rushed for 154 yards, including a 60-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter, and North Dakota State beat James Madison 26-14 on Saturday in a second-round FCS playoff game.

Sam Ojuri added 61 yards and two scores for the Bison (11-1), who will host Lehigh in the quarterfinals next weekend.

Justin Thorpe had 182 yards passing for the Dukes (8-5), hooking up with DeAndre' Smith for a 20-yard score in the second quarter. In the fourth, Thorpe caught a 35-yard touchdown pass from wide receiver Kerby Long on a trick play. That pulled James Madison within 19-14 with 7:26 left.

McNorton's touchdown run came on North Dakota State's next play from scrimmage, after an out-of-bounds kickoff gave the Bison the ball at their own 40.

Ryan Jastram kicked a 53-yard field goal to put the Bison up 10-7 at halftime. He added a 44-yarder in the third quarter.
