North Dakota State Bison and the St. John Johnnies, both powerhouses within their divisions, had overwhelming victories this past weekend. Both set scoring records that are astonishing.
North Dakota State Bison
The Bison defeated Mississippi Valley State 72-7, in their first game of 2017. The offense racked up 683 total yards. 2 touchdowns & 142 yards for leading rusher, Lance Dunn. 2 touchdowns & 126 yards rushing for Ty Brooks. Their point total included an incredible 9 touchdowns.
Their defense, held Mississippi Valley State to 55 total yards, had 5 sacks, and 11 tackles for a loss. Just a overwhelming victory, for the number 2 ranked team in the FCS division.
St. Johns Johnnies
The Johnnies set a school record, by scoring a 98-0 victory over St. Scholastica. It was the highest point total in DIII football, in over 40 years. They held a 63-0 halftime lead. Thirteen players scored a touchdown, for fourteen total touchdowns.
Congrats to both. Since this was their 1st game of the year, I hope they will get better, and beat those records.
