NDSU advances to FCS Championship after incredible one-handed pick
North Dakota State continues its incredible run in the FCS, heading to another championship after a dramatic win over James Madison Friday night.
In that game, the Bison clung to a 20-14 lead after scoring a touchdown in the 4th quarter. But with time winding down, the Dukes drove down the field and deep into the red zone.
Facing a 3rd-and-6 inside the 10-yard line, James Madison took its shot. The Dukes went for a one-on-one matchup on the outside with the game on the line.
That is when the North Dakota State defender pulled off the play of the game, reeling in an interception with one hand:

That interception proved to be the difference-maker. James Madison would get the ball back one more time but ran out of time to score.
North Dakota State is back in the FCS Championship having won 3 national titles since 2017.
