Bison prep for Blue Hens

By  | 

KFYR-TV Sports Delaware and North Dakota State are a pair of FCS programs that are getting knows for producing professional quarterback's.

Carson Wentz, Easton Stick and Brock Jensen recently for NDSU. Joe Flacco and Rich Gannon quickly come to mind for the Blue Hens.

The Bison move onto Delaware following a convincing victory over UND.

The Fighting Hawks could not stop the North Dakota State running game and Monday Zack Johnson was named the Valley Conference Offensive Lineman of the week.

"From the offensive side, I was pleased with how we were able to run the football. I challenged the Rams early. we knew they were going to try and stop all of our internal run game all of the A & B gap run game that we've lived on for years. It took some time for us to find out niche, and where we wanted to go with it and whenever you can end up with more than 250 yards that's a good day. I was excited to see our rush per average was five. I feel we established the line of scrimmage. We controlled it," said NDSU Head Coach Matt Entz.

Last year, the Bison hosted the Blue Hens. On Saturday, they're playing in Delaware's mostly renovated stadium. NDSU jumped on the Hens early in last years victory.

"They have a veteran offensive line with big tight ends," said Entz. "They're going to remind you of somewhat of ourselves a little bit. A returning quarterback who is efficient with the football, doesn't turn it over very much, it looks like he's leaned down a little bit and they try to use him in the run game a little but, at least forcing people to have to defend the possibility of him running the football."

Entz says he's also looking forward to seeing how his young team reacts to the first airplane trip of the season.
