FCS title rematch a do-over for both offenses

By  | 

FRISCO, Texas (AP) - The FCS championship rematch between North Dakota State and Sam Houston State is something of a do-over for several key returning offensive players.

They didn't have much of a say a year ago when a fake punt was the most important play in North Dakota State's 17-6 victory in a game dominated by defense.

The Bison (13-1) controlled prolific Sam Houston State running back Tim Flanders to become the fourth straight first-time FCS champion. Bearkats quarterback Brian Bell couldn't answer, completing just 12 of 32 passes.

An improved passing game won't guarantee anything for Sam Houston (11-3) on Saturday. The Bison lead the FCS in passing defense, along with scoring and total defense.

North Dakota State's offense wasn't much better a year ago, although returning quarterback Brock Jensen accounted for both touchdowns.
