Crockett, defense lead N Dakota St past Sam Houston State

FARGO, N.D. (AP) North Dakota used a familiar formula of John Crockett and a stingy defense to earn their fourth straight trip to the FCS championship game.

Crockett ran for three touchdowns and the Bison suffocated Sam Houston State's offense in the second half for a 35-3 win before more than 18,000 fans at Friday's semifinal game.

The three-time defending champion Bison (14-1) will return to Frisco, Texas, in January with the hopes of becoming the first team in the division formerly known as I-AA to win four straight titles. Appalachian State has also won three in a row.
