No, Not Really ...It was 37-3 

Ty Brooks average 11.8 on the ground and Trey lance threw for 3 touchdowns as the Bison manhandled another opponent.  Illinois State is no sloutch though, they came in at 3-1 with a decent QB in Brady Davis, theyre just not at the Bison's level.

Here's what they're saying on Campus: 

The No. 1-ranked Bison used myriad big plays to dominate 10th-ranked Illinois State on Saturday, scoring a 37-3 victory before 13,391 fans at sold-out Hancock Stadium to open Missouri Valley Football Conference play.

NDSU has won 26 consecutive games, tying James Madison (2016-17) for the second-longest winning streak in FCS history. The Bison also own the longest streak with 33 consecutive wins from 2012-14.

"It's just the culture that we have," said Bison senior defensive end Derrek Tuszka, who had two sacks against the Redbirds. "We don't get hung up on past wins and losses. We learn from them and move forward."

Next up , Northern Iowa.... It's gonna be a Bloodbath !
