teams’ season opener.

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.
