National champion NDSU tops final FCS polls of season; SDSU makes top 20 in both polls


FARGO, North Dakota — Five-time national football champion North Dakota State University is the unanimous No. 1 team in the final FCS polls of the season.

The Bison on Saturday beat Jacksonville State 37-10 for a fifth straight title. They top both the final coaches poll and the final STATS media poll.

NDSU rival South Dakota State made the top 20 in both polls — finishing 16th in the coaches poll and 15th in the media poll. The Jackrabbits made their fourth consecutive appearance in the FCS playoffs this past season.

The University of North Dakota received votes in both polls but did not crack the top 25.
