FARGO, N.D. -- Sam Ojuri rushed for a touchdown, Brock Jensen threw a scoring pass to Kevin Vaadeland, and North Dakota State held South Dakota State to a season low in total offense Saturday in a 20-17 win that clinched at least a share of the Missouri Valley Football Conference title.

Adam Keller added a pair of field goals for NDSU (9-1, 6-1), including a 30-yarder in the third quarter that put the Bison ahead for good.

The Bison held SDSU (7-3, 5-2) to 209 yards of total offense, just 46 of them on the ground. A lot of those yards came on the Jackrabbits' 74-yard scoring drive in the final minutes, but SDSU couldn't recover the ensuing onside kick and NDSU ran out the clock.

Ojuri had 75 yards rushing and put the Bison ahead 20-10 on a 3-yard touchdown run with 2:39 left that proved to be the game-winning score.
