FARGO, N.D. -- Brock Jensen threw for two touchdowns and rushed for one to lead North Dakota State to a 56-10 win over Ferris State on Saturday.
North Dakota State (2-0) scored on its first three possessions, capped by Jensen's 43-yard pass to Zach Vraa. His 4-yard pass to Andrew Grothmann made it 35-0 before the Bulldogs (0-1) got on the board.
It was the 15th-straight home-opening win for the two-time defending FCS champions, who opened the season by upsetting Kansas State.

Jason Vander Laan was 7 of 14 for 56 yards, including a 19-yard touchdown pass to Dewayne Boston, for Ferris State's only touchdown. Vander Laan also rushed for 100 yards on 18 carries.
