1) Have literally never been defeated at home in the playoffs. Previous playoff shellackings (is that a word) have come while we were visitors.
2) Our defense is quite serviceable this year. 4th in TOs forced, 11th in scoring defense, 3rd in rushing defense. Will probably be a good matchup for NDSU's 8th ranked rushing offense.
3) In comparison, NDUS is 57th in turnovers forced, and 18th in scoring defense.
4) SHSU 4th in scoring offense.
5) It's starting to get hot and humid down in Texas, so I'm interested in seeing how the Bison fare with minimal time to get used to it.

This is probably the best chance we've had at a national title since 2011 and we're still 3 point underdogs. To be expected when facing the national champion of 8 out of the last 9 seasons but this isn't the same Bison we're used to either.

Overall we have a balanced team with a chip on our shoulder. I'm looking forward to it and will be at the game on Sunday.

Good summary. Run Sammy, Run! End the Bison’s season.

Thanks! I was glad the defense I raved about didn't disappoint as they held the offense to just 3 points. Sam also held the Bison to 229 yards on Sunday, which was North Dakota State's lowest offensive output in a game since 2014. Special teams was a serious killer. The Bison's first 17 points were all off of special teams (blocked punt - safety, back-to-back return touchdowns). We'll need to get that fixed and soon.

Overall pretty happy with the result and my voice is still recovering from the game. Hopefully it'll get back in shape before the semifinals game on ABC this weekend.

I've been a Blue Hen fan since KC Keeler started leading Sam, so we'll see you in the title game!
