NDSU's second year in Division I-AA didn't go unnoticed in the record books.

Sophomore punter Mike Dragosavich's average of 46.5 yards shattered the school single season record of 42.9 yards held by Aaron Pederson in 1998. Dragosavich is also well on his way to breaking Pederson's career record of 41.8 yards. He's at 43.7 yards after two seasons. Dragosavich is currently second in the I-AA statistics.

Junior strong safety Craig Dahl has 100 solo tackles, which puts him in third place. Jared Essler, a current Bison student assistant coach, is the leader with 123. Safety Mike Sheppard had 111 from 2000-03. NDSU had three Great West Football Conference leaders: Steffes (84 points), Shamen Washington (13.9 punt return average) and Scott Walter (four fumbles recovered).
