2013 FCS Championship game final score: Sam Houston State gets outplayed in second half

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

North Dakota State's offense took over in the second half and Sam Houston State's offense couldn't keep up.

After a close first half, the Sam Houston St. Bearkats could no longer keep up with the North Dakota St. Bison and fell 39-13 in the NCAA Division I Football Championship game on Saturday.

With the score tied at 10-10 heading into the second half, the Bison outscored the Bearkats, 29-3, in the second half to blow the game wide-open. Bison quarterback Brock Jensen and running back Sam Ojuri each scored two rushing touchdowns in the second half as the Bison ended the game with 300 rushing yards on 45 carries and five touchdowns between five rushers. Ojuri led the way with 14 carries, 92 yards and two touchdowns.

The Bearkats offense halted in the second half, only getting 2.8 yards per carry for the game, and their passing game produced 275 yards but four interceptions, including 255 yards and three interceptions by QB Brian Bell.

This was the second straight year the Bearkats lost in the title game.
