North Dakota Fighting Hawks (7-5)


FCS Playoff Review: Nicholls 24, North Dakota 6

The Score - Nicholls (9-4) beat North Dakota (7-5) 24-6 in the first round of the FCS playoffs.

Story Line - Southland co-champ Nicholls played like a team that was hosting a first-round game for the third straight year. Quarterback Chase Fourcade accounted for a touchdown run and pass and Julien Gums rushed for 172 yards to go over 1,000 for the season.

Game Ball - A balanced Nicholls defense held independent North Dakota to only two field goals. Sully Laiche had a strip sack of UND's Nate Ketteringham that was recovered by Brandon Fontenot at the Fighting Hawks' 1 and set up a second-quarter touchdown. Kevin Moore also recovered a fumble and was joined by Darren Evans and Jarius Monroe for the team high with seven tackles each.
