NCAA Division I Football Championship
While the Cotton Bowl may be the big football game in North Texas this weekend, it’s not the only game. Saturday afternoon Sam Houston State takes on North Dakota State for the NCAA DI Football Championship at FC Dallas Stadium in Frisco.
Bo Levi Mitchell led three straight late touchdown drives, the finale coming with 2:47 left, leading Eastern Washington to a 20-19 victory over Delaware and its first FCS championship.
Fans poured in by the thousands into Pizza Hut Park to watch a game that could have easily been played 25 miles south in Dallas. But instead of Big D, the NCAA chose one of the fastest growing cities in the country.
