FARGO, N.D. (AP) — The North Dakota State University football team is a win away from a second consecutive NCAA Division I national championship.

The Bison (13-1) face Sam Houston State (11-3) on Saturday afternoon in the Football Championship Subdivision title game in Frisco, Texas. It's a rematch of last year's championship game, which NDSU won 17-6.

History suggests this year's matchup also will be close. The two schools have met three previous times, with a total of only 17 points separating the teams. NDSU won two of those three matchups.

The Bison are 27-2 over the past two seasons and undefeated in 11 road games.

Game time is 1 p.m.
