Bison Come Back to Beat Salukis


By WSIL Sports

FARGO, N.D. -- North Dakota State scored 13 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to come back and beat SIU 23-17 Saturday afternoon at the FargoDome.

SIU (5-4, 4-2) snapped a three-game win streak with the loss. The Dawgs still have hope for a playoff berth, but need to win their final two games against South Dakota State and Western Illinois.

North Dakota State (7-1, 4-1) took its first lead on a five-yard run from John Crockett with 5:23 left in the game. On the ensuing Saluki possession, the Bison intercepted Kory Faulkner to close out the game.

The Salukis scored first on a 32-yard touchdown pass from Faulkner to LaSteven McKinney. They led 14-10 at halftime after a 55-yard scoop and score from freshman Brandon WIlliams in the second quarter.

SIU hosts South Dakota State next weekend.
