With the biggest win in school history less than 3 yards away, North Dakota State went for two and failed.

The Bison earned the ball back though – and they finished off the program's signature victory by running the ball right at Iowa.

Cam Pedersen kicked a 37-yard field as time expired and North Dakota State, of the FCS, rallied to beat No. 13 Iowa 23-21 on Saturday for its sixth straight win over an FBS opponent.

The loss was just the fourth by a ranked FBS team to an FCS school. North Dakota State isn't just another Football Championship Subdivision team, though. The Bison have won the last five FCS national titles.


12-Minutes the third and fourth quarters were shortened to with No. 5 Clemson blowing out South Carolina State. The Tigers won 59-0.

18-Straight passes completed by North Carolina's Mitch Trubisky, breaking a school record that stood since 1967.

20-Years since Army started a season 3-0 .

39-Straight road losses by Kansas after losing 43-7 to Memphis.

50-Yards allowed by Florida's defense in 32-0 win over North Texas, breaking the school record of 59 against Western Carolina in 2006.

74-Years since No. 17 Texas A&M started 3-0 in three consecutive seasons.


How's this for quick scoring? Two touchdowns with no time off the clock.

That's what happened in the first quarter for No. 5 Clemson against South Carolina State.

After Wayne Gallman ran 3 yards for a score, the ensuing kickoff went to Ahmaad Harris in the end zone. The receiver flipped the ball to the official before taking a knee. That's a fumble! Clemson's Denzel Johnson pounced on the ball for the touchdown.

A week ago against Troy, Clemson was guilty of a special teams gaffe. Ray-Ray McCloud's 75-yard punt return ended when the receiver let go of the ball at the 1 before reaching the end zone.
