1985 NDSU team has fond memories of game against North Alabama

1 / 2
2 / 2

FARGO - NDSU is in the midst of the most dominant stretch in FCS history with six titles in seven years, but it's not the only time NDSU has dominated its competition.

Thirty years ago, the Bison were on a roll in Division 2 that sounds pretty similiar with four titles in six years.

That included the only previous matchup between NDSU and this weekend's opponent, North Alabama.

The Bison snuck into the postseason that year, then rolled to the title, beating the Lions 35-7. Former defensive back Todd DeBates, a member of the 85 team says his fondest memories of that game was the resilence that 1985 team had.
