Sam Houston is undefeated and ranked No. 1 in the nation while Notrh Dakota State has only one loss 27-24 against Youngstown State November and ranked No. 4 in the final regular season polls.

Here is a snippet of a preview about this championship game:

As good as Sam Houston's offense has been, their defense is the primary reason they are still undefeated. If NDSU is the FCS Wisconsin, Sam Houston is the TCU of the FCS world -- they run a 4-2-5 alignment, and they are fast, deep and aggressive at every level of the field. A whopping 15 Bearkats recorded at least five tackles for loss (something TCU couldn't even boast at its best), ten recorded at least two sacks, five picked off at least two passes, and five forced at least two fumbles.
