FCS Semifinals 2011: North Dakota State Downs Lehigh To Advance

College football's final four is set, now that North Dakota State has ran past Lehigh, 24-0. NDSU will welcome the Georgia Southern Eagles next week, while the Montana Grizzlies will match up with Sam Houston State.

This game was much more evenly matched than the one-sided score would suggest. The yardage battle favored the Bison just 384 to 355, each team committed a trio of turnovers, and time of possession was a virtual split. Credit NDSU's bend-don't-break pass defense, which limited Chris Lum and company to 286 yards and an interception on 53 attempts.

Sam Ojuri was the offensive hero for North Dakota State, tallying 132 total yards. Brock Jensen finished with 174 through the air on 28 attempts.

The Bison held Matt Fitz and the rest of the Mountain Hawks ground game to 69 yards on the evening, an encouraging sign with GSU's potent rushing attack up next weekend.
