The number one and two seeds will meet head on in the NCAA Division I Football Championship game Saturday, Jan. 7, at 12 noon in Pizza Hut Park in Frisco.

No. 2 seed North Dakota State rolled to a 35-7 victory over No. 3 seed Georgia Southern Saturday afternoon in the Fargodome.

No. 1 seed Sam Houston defeated No. 4 Montana 31-28 Friday night in Huntsville.

North Dakota State (13-1), the NCAA FCS leader in scoring defense shut down another top offense on Saturday, slowing Georgia Southern's vaunted triple option attack to limit six-time NCAA Division I national champion to its season-low point total.

National titles are a big part of North Dakota State's rich history as it has won eight Division II or College Division championships. However, the Bison, like Sam Houston State, will be appearing in the FCS title game for the first time.

The seven points Georgia Southern scored matched the Bison's defensive average through three playoff games and lowered their season scoring average to 13.2 points per game.

GSU, a six-time FCS champion, entered the game ranked second in the FCS with 334.1 rushing yards per game, but NDSU outrushed the Eagles 314 yards to 186.

Sam Ojuri had 100 yards on 15 carries for the Missouri Valley Football Conference co-champion and quarterback Brock Jensen and D.J. McNorton added 94 yards each. All three players scored on runs.

The Bison, who converted three GSU turnovers into touchdowns, pulled away with defensive stops at key sequences.

Sam Houston State's 2,000-plus allotment of NCAA Championship football game tickets for the general public has sold out.

Regular season Bearkat season ticket holders and Bowers Stadium Suite Holders will have the opportunity to order midfield tickets ($45 each) Monday and Tuesday.

Sam Houston State students will receive an email early next week from SHSU Student Services with information and a pass word to order tickets online from Pizza Hut Park in the Bearkat student section. Tickets are $40.

Regular season suite holders/season ticket holders must call or come by the Sam Houston athletic ticket office located in the Ron Mafrige Field House Monday or Tuesday to obtain seats in the SHSU midfield ticket block.

The Bearkat athletic ticket office telephone number is (936) 294-1729. Season ticket/suite holders may order up to four tickets (or the same amount as their season ticket total if it is more than four).

Deadline to guarantee the order is Tuesday, Dec. 20, at 6 p.m.  After then, these seats will be opened for sale to the public. This opportunity applies only to regular season package purchasers, not playoff series customers.
