FARGO, N.D. -- Brock Jensen passed for two touchdowns and ran for another Saturday to help North Dakota State defeat South Dakota State 28-3 in the second round of the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs.

The Bison (11-1) shut down SDSU's vaunted ground game, holding the leading rusher in FCS, Zach Zenner, to 46 yards on 15 carries.

The Jackrabbits (9-4) scored first on a 26-yard field goal by Justin Syrovatka late in the first quarter. The Bison responded with a six-play, 75-yard drive capped by a 12-yard touchdown pass from Jensen to Garrett Bruhn.

Jensen added a 2-yard touchdown run in the second quarter and a 10-yard scoring toss to Bruhn in the fourth.

NDSU's John Crockett rushed for 90 yards on 11 carries.

The Bison advanced to the quarterfinals against Wofford.
