North Dakota State lost 12 starters and its head coach from a team that won a third consecutive FCS championship last season.
It might not make any difference.
One week into a new season, the Bison look just as efficient as ever under new coach Chris Klieman.
John Crockett ran for 138 yards and three touchdowns, including an 80-yard burst that helped turn the game around, and North Dakota State beat Iowa State 34-14 on Saturday for its 25th straight victory.
Oh, and they also rallied from a 14-0 deficit for their fifth consecutive victory against FBS competition.
Note to the entire Football Bowl Subdivision, and the Big 12 Conference in particular: Stop scheduling North Dakota State.
