Fargo (N.D.) - No one said it was going to be easy as North Dakota State held off Charleston Southern in the Fargodome's first ever overtime game to grab their first victory of the season 24-17 in overtime. The Bison out-gained Charleston Southern 424-263, and NDSU was able to average more than five yards a carry on the ground on over forty carries, as NDSU was able to put it away on the first game of overtime thanks to King Frazier bounces things outside for the touchdown.
Quarterback Easton Stick played well for the most part going 17 for 27 for 194 yards in the air with two passing touchdowns, but a costly interception late in the fourth quarter almost cost the Bison the game. Stick also had 50 yards on the ground.
North Dakota State's defense, specifically the linebackers without star Nick DeLuca for most of the second half, came up big. MJ Stumpf, Matt Plank and Pierre Gee-Tucker finished as the three leading tacklers in the game with 20 total tackles and two tackles for loss.
