Top 10 Bison football plays of 2014: Number 8

(Note: As part of our coverage of the FCS national title game, we’re counting down the top 10 Bison plays of the year).

No. 8 was not so much of a stunning, game-changing play but more of a statement. NDSU was leading 7-0 over Youngstown State at the Fargodome late in the first quarter, a touchdown on a pass from Carson Wentz to Zach Vraa thanks to a Christian Dudzik forced fumble and a Carlton Littlejohn recovery. Another Dudzik play, an interception and return to the Penguins’ 20-yard line put the Bison in prime position. On the second play, Wentz set the tone for the rest of the day, a 17-yard touchdown run where instead of running out of bounds near the goal line he literally ran over a Penguin defensive back and into the end zone. YSU was hit in the mouth and never recovered in a 38-14 Bison win. “We saw some things on tape where we could utilize Carson in the running game more,” head coach Chris Klieman said in his post-game press conference. “He wasn’t going to be denied a victory for these seniors today.”
