New Coach, new Quarterback ... Same result.
It took 2 quarters to give Bison fans a snapshot of what is to come this season. They crushed the Butler Bulldogs 57-10 yesterday in front of 35,000 adoring fans at Target Field in Minneapolis.
Trey lance Picked up where Easton Stick left off and tossed 4 touchdowns in a serious drubbing of their conference rivals
According to ESPN :
MINNEAPOLIS -- Trey Lance threw for four touchdowns and ran for two more and defending FCS champion North Dakota State rolled to a 57-10 victory over Butler on Saturday.
Lance, a redshirt freshman making his first start and one of 36 players from Minnesota on the Bison roster, dazzled a crowd of 34,554 at Target Field, home of the Minnesota Twins. He had all four of his passing touchdowns and a rushing score by halftime with NDSU leading 36-0.
The game was the first as a head coach for North Dakota State's Matt Entz, who had been the program's defensive coordinator the past five seasons.
This was the second football game played at Target Field. St. John's and St. Thomas drew a Division-III record crowd of 37,555 on Sept. 23, 2017.
If there was any doubt of a fall-off from last year, it got put to bed. Would love to see what this elite team will look like when they take on UND next week in Fargo.
