All of Jensen's touchdown passes were for less than 15 yards and he picked up his final touchdown on a 1-yard rush. Jensen's career 62 touchdown passes broke the record of career TD passes at NDSU, previously held by Steve Walker with 60. Sam Ojuri ran for 146 yards on 17 carries - one for a game-high 55 yards- and John Crockett ran 120 yards on 15 carries for the Bison (10-0, 7-0).
