FARGO, N.D. -- John Crockett's 5-yard touchdown run with 5:23 to play gave North Dakota State a 23-17 win over Southern Illinois Saturday.

The Bison (7-1, 4-1 Missouri Valley), who suffered their only loss of the season in their last home game two weeks ago against Indiana State, trailed 17-10 entering the fourth quarter. Derrick Lang's 1-yard run with 12:38 remaining tied it and North Dakota State used a 11-play, 52-yard drive to score the winning TD.

Southern Illinois (5-4, 4-2) scored on Kory Faulkner's 32-yard pass to LaSteven McKinney and on Brand Williams' 55-yard fumble return. The Salukis only managed 11 rushing yards to North Dakota State's 186.

Brock Jensen ran for a score and completed 15 of 25 passes for 200 yards for the Bison. Faulkner was 17 of 26 for 166 yards for SIU.
