SIOUX FALLS, S.D. -- Brock Jensen threw for two touchdowns and ran for two more, Sam Ojuri added two rushing scores, and North Dakota State bounced back from its first loss of the season with a 54-0 dismantling of South Dakota on Saturday night.
Jensen threw for 195 yards, including a 32-yard score to Nate Moody and a 2-yarder to Andrew Bonnet, and added touchdown runs of 10 and 2 yards for the Bison (6-1, 3-1 Missouri Valley), whose 17-14 loss last week to Missouri State snapped a 10-game winning streak dating to last season. Ojuri scored on runs of 11 and 4 yards and finished with 76 yards rushing.
Backup Carson Wentz added a 19-yard touchdown pass to Taylor Nelson. The Bison defense was just as dominant, holding the Coyotes (1-6, 0-4) to 76 yards of total offense and four first downs, and Zach Colvin capped the scoring with a 12-yard interception return.
