North Dakota State Bison
Sam Houston State running back Tim Flanders ran free for what looked like the go-ahead touchdown in the third quarter of the FCS championship rematch with North Dakota State on Saturday.
A yellow flag resting at the line of scrimmage behind the school's career rushing leader changed everything.
Flanders' 41-yard run was wiped out by a holding penalty, and Brian Bell's interception on the next play led to the Bison taking the lead instead and going on to their second straight FCS title with a 39-13 victory. The Bearkats (11-4) had two other holding calls that scratched long runs deep in Bison territory on drives that ended without points.
''I was more disappointed in some of our penalties that we had that were pre-snap penalties,'' Sam Houston coach Willie Fritz said. ''I tell the guys all the time once the ball is snapped all the decisions made out there are subjective decisions and there's not a whole lot you can do about it.''
