 FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Special teams ace Shamen Washington gained 150 yards on returns and scored a touchdown on offense to help undefeated North Dakota State to a 52-17 victory over winless Southern Utah Saturday.
The 5-foot-6, 148-pound Washington, a junior from St. Petersburg, Fla., returned the opening kickoff 54 yards to set up Pete Blincoe's 8-yard touchdown run. NDSU never trailed.
The Bison led 24-14 at half. A 6-yard touchdown run by Washington on the team's first possession of the second half made it 31-14. That score came after Washington returned a punt 35 yards to the Southern Utah 16.
Blincoe and running back Pat Paschall scored two touchdowns apiece for NDSU (8-0, 2-0 Great West Football Conference). Paschall, in his first year with NDSU, went over 100 yards rushing for the first time this season.
Quarterback Cody Stone came off the bench to throw a pair of touchdown passes for the Thunderbirds (0-8, 0-2 GWFC).
Ryan Parsons scored on a 25-yard pass from Steve Walker to make it 45-17 with 2:05 left in the third quarter, ending the day for Walker and most of the Bison starters. NDSU led 52-17 after three quarters.
Nick Schommer led the Bison defense with two interceptions.
Bison running back Tyler Roehl, who rushed for a school record 263 yards last week at Minnesota, and the team's leading tackler, linebacker Joe Mays, were held out with minor injuries.
NDSU has won 12 straight games, the longest winning streak in NCAA Division I football.
