Illinois St comes close, can't stop N Dakota State's FCS run

FRISCO, Texas (AP) Tre Roberson made one huge play to give Illinois State a great chance to end North Dakota State's three-year run as FCS champion.

The Indiana transfer couldn't do it again.

Carson Wentz ran 5 yards for the winning touchdown about a minute after Roberson's 58-yard run put the Redbirds ahead late, and the Bison became the first team to win four straight FCS titles with a thrilling 29-27 victory Saturday.
