One of the most impressive streaks in sports ended Friday night in Fargo, North Dakota.
James Madison defeated North Dakota State 27-17, snapping the Bison’s streak of five consecutive FCS championships.
North Dakota State has been one of the most dominant programs in college football since 2011. The Bison won five titles under two different coaches. Chris Klieman won the last two titles, and current Wyoming coach Craig Bohl won the first three.
For comparison’s sake, no team in FCS has ever won four straight outright championships. In D-II football, North Alabama won three straight titles, and Augustana (Ill.) won four straight in D-III.
James Madison advanced to the FCS Championship Game to play Youngstown State on Saturday, Jan. 7.
