AP - Sports

GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) -- North Dakota's Jake Miller and Adam Shaugabay each scored three touchdowns in a 69-10 victory over Valparaiso in the season opener for both schools Thursday night.

Miller rushed for 108 yards for his sixth career 100-yard rushing game. UND redshirt freshman Ryan Bartels threw for 212 yards in his first start. Greg Hardin's 90-yard kickoff return at the beginning of the third quarter brought the score to 42-0. UND's 69 points mark its highest total since moving to Division I in 2008.

A 36-yard field goal by Josh Young put Valparaiso on the board at the beginning of the third quarter, and Fred Gladney scored the only touchdown for the Crusaders on a 41-yard catch from Ben Lehman late in the third. The Crusaders are trying to come back from last season's 1-10 record.

Thursday night's game was the first meeting of the two teams since 1920.
