YOUNGSTOWN, OH -- North Dakota State won for the 30th consecutive time Saturday but few games were more impressive than this.

The Bison blew out Youngstown State 56-17, leading 42-7 at halftime. Redshirt freshman quarterback Trey Lance completed just seven of nine passes, but three of them went for touchdowns in the first half. Freshman running back Kobe Johnson added a 94 yard kick return for a touchdown and a 75 yard touchdown run in the Bison beatdown.

Jeff Kolpack and Dom Izzo recap the game in Youngstown and look ahead to the FCS Playoffs, where the first playoff rankings will be unveiled Wednesday night by the FCS Playoff Committee.

NDSU returns to the field Saturday, hosting Western Illinois in the Harvest Bowl.
