FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Easton Stick threw for two touchdowns and Lance Dunn ran for two more as North Dakota State beat Missouri State for the eighth time in 10 tries, 38-11 in the Bison’s Missouri Valley Conference opener Saturday.

Stick drove the Bison 90 yards on the opening drive, hitting Jeff Illies from 32-yards out for the score to make it 7-0 less than four minutes into the game. Dunn capped a four-play, 81-yard drive on the second possession, scoring from 18 yards out.

North Dakota State (4-0, 1-0) stopped the Bears on fourth down at the 1 early in the second quarter, but surrendered a safety when Dunn was unable to escape the end zone on first down from the 2.

The victory was the seventh straight Homecoming victory for the Bison, matching the longest such streak in school history.

Missouri State (1-4, 0-2) managed just 234 yards offense.
