SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — No. 6-ranked North Dakota State avoided its first losing streak since 2009, which is the last time the Bison lost two football games in a row.

NDSU had a dominating defensive performance, including seven sacks, to spark a 25-0 victory against Missouri State on Saturday in Missouri Valley Football Conference play at Plaster Stadium.

The Bison (3-1, 2-1 MVFC) responded after a 38-14 loss at Southern Illinois the week before. That loss ended NDSU's Division I FCS record 39-game winning streak.

The Bison rushed for 272 yards on 48 attempts, while limiting the Bears to 63 rushing yards on 34 carries.

Forum reporters Mike McFeely, Jeff Kolpack and Eric Peterson broke down the NDSU victory in the video below:
