Bison run all over Indiana State for second consecutive win
TERRE HAUTE, Ind. - On a quiet, but autumn-looking day in western Indiana, North Dakota State's West Coast offense came alive. It took until the 10th game of the season but the Bison finally looked as advertised.
Quarterback Jose Mohler completed 10 of 12 passes to seven different receivers, running back Pat Paschall ran for 129 yards and NDSU stomped Indiana State 56-17. Don't look now, but that's two straight wins.
"The guys are starting to get it now," Paschall said. "Even though it's late in the season, the guys have years left and we're doing what the Bison did the last few years. Some times, it takes a little time."
It was as close to a complete game the Bison have had all year. The Sycamores came in with decent defensive numbers, especially in defending the run. Not Saturday before 2,878 fans at Memorial Stadium.
The Bison had 464 yards averaging 7.3 yard per running play and 13.1 yards per completion.
"They went through us like a hot knife through butter," said Indiana State head coach Trent Miles.
