NDSU started strong, building a 17-6 lead at the half. But JMU seized momentum in the third with a touchdown run from Marcus Marshall. In a defensive battle, the game came down to a JMU fourth down incompletion at the Bison’s 25-yard line with 58 seconds left in regulation.

The Bison’s six program titles now match Georgia Southern for most championship wins in FCS history.
