2013 FCS Championship game: Sam Houston State, North Dakota State tied at the half

Jerome Miron-US PRESSWIRE

Sam Houston State and North Dakota State are in a dogfight for the FCS championship.

In what has mostly been a defensive struggle for both teams, the Sam Houston St. Bearkats and the North Dakota St. Bison are in a dogfight for the NCAA Division I Football Championship as they're tied at 10-10 at the half.

The Bison led 3-0 after the first quarter before the Bearkats tied it early in the second quarter. The Bearkats were able to at least put some yards up but the Bison were struggling to get anything going, leading to 12 first downs by the Bearkats to seven for the Bison.

The Bison were able to put together a 5-play, 72-yard drive, capped off by a 20-yard touchdown run by Brock Jensen with 3:09 left in the half. After an interception that would have ended a late Bearkats drive was called back for holding, Bearkats quarterback Brian Bell connected on a 30-yard pass to Richard Sincere before tossing a 1-yard touchdown pass to K.J. Williams to tie the game.

Bell is trying to do all he can with 160 yards passing with one touchdown, one interception and is also the team's leading rusher. The Bison are doing it mostly with their running game as they've combined for 134 yards on 15 carries and one touchdown among five ball-carriers.
