North Dakota 66, South Dakota Mines 0

Jake Miller rushed for 178 yards and a touchdown, Braden Hanson

and Marcus Hendrickson threw for two scores apiece, and North

Dakota dominated South Dakota Mines 66-0 Thursday night in both

teams’ season opener.

Mitch Sutton added two rushing scores and P.J. Sparks and Adam

Shaugabay had one each for North Dakota, which rolled up a

school-record 653 yards of total offense and held the Hardrockers,

a Division II program, to 142.

Hanson and Hendrickson split time at quarterback, and both were

nearly perfect. Hanson was 13 of 14 for 188 yards passing before

leaving with an injury in the second quarter, and Hendrickson had

95 yards on 5-of-6 passing.

Hanson opened the scoring in the first quarter with touchdown

passes to Seth Wisthoff and Jameer Jackson. North Dakota kept

pouring it on in the second, as Sutton scored twice and Hendrickson

hit Greg Hardin and Blair Townsend for touchdowns.
