North Dakota State got 231 total yards from quarterback Brock Jensen and Warren Holloway caught a pass for a score and ran for another as the Bison (13-1) defeated Georgia Southern (12-2), 35-7, on Saturday in Fargo, N.D., to advance to their first FCS title game.

North Dakota State will face Sam Houston State (14-0) for the national championship at Pizza Hut Park in Frisco on Jan. 7. The game will be televised on ESPN2.

Holloway, a 6-foot-2, 199-pound senior from Houston, scored on a 19-yard reception from Jensen in the first quarter and a 17-yard run in the second quarter.

Running backs Sam Ojuri and D.J. McNorton combined to rush for 194 yards and added touchdowns in the fourth quarter for NDSU.
