Media Blog PostGame Show vs Indiana State

A lot of things seemed to click on Saturday for NDSU as the Bison played their most complete game of the season, beating Indiana State 34-17 for a 31st consecutive win. Zach Vraa scored two touchdowns (his first two of the season); John Crockett racked up over 100 yards rushing and Kyle Emanuel had 2.5 sacks as the Bison dominated the Sycamores. NDSU improved to 7-0 on the season and 3-0 in Valley play with three of their final five games on the road.
