FARGO, N.D. -- Johnny Towalid returned two interceptions for touchdowns and Indiana State beat North Dakota State 17-14, ending the Bison's 10-game winning streak.
Towalid picked off a pass by Brock Jensen and went 27 yards for a score in the second quarter to give Indiana State a 10-3 lead. He did it again early in the fourth quarter, scoring from 31 yards to make it 17-6 Sycamores.
Jensen scored on a 1-yard run with 9:56 to play and also made the 2-point conversion to get NDSU within three points. Jensen's third interception, by Larry King, ended the Bison's best shot after that.
