FARGO, N.D. (AP) - For the second straight week, defending FCS champion North Dakota State is preparing for a team that runs the ball almost all the time.
The Bison face Georgia Southern in Friday night's Football Championship Subdivision semifinal at the Fargodome, with the winner advancing to the title game in Frisco, Texas.
Georgia Southern leads the country in rushing by averaging 409 yards per game. The Eagles have not thrown the ball more than 10 times in a single game.
Bison linebacker Grant Olson set a school record with 29 tackles in last week's win over run-happy Wofford. He says he enjoys playing against an option team, but it takes a group effort to stop it.
The game is a repeat of last year's semifinal in which the Bison defeated the Eagles 35-7 at the Fargodome.
