SACRAMENTO, Calif.--North Dakota State steamrolled the University of Montana 30-3 here in the Camellia Bowl meeting between the Nos. 1 and 2 teams in the nation on Dec. 13, 1969.

Any doubt to the Bison's grip on the top slot was disspelled by the overwhelming display of the Fargo team. But this time, NDSU changed the script slightly.

The Bison went to the air as QB Bruce Grasamke completed 16 of 25 passes for 206 yards as the Bison finished with a total of 234 passing yards and 421 yards in total offense.

Grasamke opened the scoring with a 7-yard run in the first period. After a Montana field goal, NDSU followed with 24 consecutive points. Paul Hatchett took in a 15-yard pass from Grasamke, Jim Twardy kicked a 23-yard field goal, Dennis Preboski ran 38 yards for another score, and Tim Mjos hauled in an 8-yard pass from Mike Bentson for the final TD.

NDSU finished 10-0-0 for the season.
