Indiana State knocks off #1 team in FCS despite no offensive touchdowns
On Saturday, Indiana State traveled out to the Fargodome to take on North Dakota State, a conference opponent and the #1 team in the FCS rankings, and put together a very impressive defensive performance to get the win.
Despite scoring no offensive touchdowns against the defending national champions, the Sycamores ended up winning 17-14 because of two interceptions returned for touchdowns by defensive back Johnny Towalid. Indiana State recorded three total interceptions the entire game.
Coming into the game, North Dakota State had not thrown an interception all season.
The Bison were looking really good coming off of a big 48-7 win over #3 Youngstown State last weekend, but couldn't get the momentum to carry over against the Sycamore defense (which ranks 3rd nationally in scoring defense, allowing just 13 points per game) , The Indiana State defense held the Bison to under 200 yards passing with no touchdowns on the day.
“I don’t think anybody thought that we would win other than our players and us as coaches. Anytime you can beat the defending national champion at their place, it says a lot about our team.” said Indiana State head coach Trent Miles.
“This conference, they are all heavyweights,” Miles said of the competition in the Missouri Valley Conference. “Anybody in this conference can play with anybody. It will be just as tough next week going into Western Illinois.”
Obviously the defensive coaching staff put together a great game plan, and if their guys continue to execute as well as they have been, Miles and his guys are going to be tough to beat.
