FLORENCE, Ala.--North Dakota State exploded for touchdowns on all five of its possessions in the third quarter and turned the NCAA Division II football championship into a 51-11 rout over Indiana University of Pennsylvania.

Quarterback Chris Simdorn, the Harlon Hill recipient as the nation's top player in Division II, demonstrated why he won the award as he ran for 145 yards and two touchdowns, and passed for 179 yards (completing four of eight tries) and three scores. His 324 yards in total offense was a school playoff record.

Tony Satter's 174 yards (on just 12 carries) lifted his 1990 tournament yards to 619 to break the NCAA record of 580 set by Johnny Bailey of Texas A&I in 1988. It was the eighth straight time that Satter had ran for over 100 yards in playoff action.

The NDSU defense sacked IUP quarterbacks 10 times for 69 yards in losses including Bison outside linebacker Todd Wash, who was in on six sacks.
