FARGO, N.D. (AP)—Sam Ojuri and Zach Vraa scored touchdowns, and North Dakota State rode its top-rated defense to a 14-7 victory over Wofford on Saturday in the quarterfinals of the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs.
The Bison (12-1) forced two turnovers, blocked a field goal and did not allow an offensive touchdown. They advanced to the semifinals against Georgia Southern.
