Posted:

FARGO, N.D. (AP) -- Brock Jensen completed a career-high 22 of 25 passes for 204 yards and a touchdown Saturday as North Dakota State took sole possession of first place in the Missouri Valley Conference with a 27-19 victory over Northern Iowa.

D.J. McNorton scored on a 6-yard run and an 8-yard pass for the Bison (8-0, 5-0), who are one of two undefeated teams in the FCS, along with Sam Houston State (8-0). North Dakota State also scored on a 3-yard fumble recovery by Kyle Emanuel.

Northern Iowa (6-2, 5-1), which was averaging 202 yards rushing per game, was held to 53. David Johnson had 16 yards on 10 carries, but caught 10 passes for 114 yards and a TD.

Tirrell Rennie was 20 of 30 for 224 yards, but threw his first interception of the season -- snapping a school-record streak of 171 passes without an interception dating back to last season.
