Bison Hail Mary in February? North Dakota State converts 37-yard TD at buzzer
There has been plenty of action during the spring college football season with a host of lower-level teams in action.
One of them is North Dakota State as the Bison traveled to Southern Illinois on Saturday for their third game of the season. In a lopsided affair that ended with a 38-14 victory for SIU, the Bison converted a 37-yard Hail Mary as the first half expired.
QB Zeb Noland made the touchdown pass, and he later converted a 5-yard run for a score in an otherwise forgettable game for the Bison. Noland is the son of Travis Noland, who was the high school coach in Oconee County, Georgia of LSU QB Max Johnson.
The loss also snapped North Dakota State’s 39-game win streak, which meant the Bison lost their first game since 2017. The top-ranked Bison have won the last three FCS national championships.
Noland is following in some pretty big shoes for the Bison as their previous QB was Trey Lance, a notable NFL prospect in the upcoming draft. And Indianapolis Colts’ QB Carson Wentz wrapped up his decorated career there in the 2015 season.
