The Central Arkansas Bears and North Dakota State Bison face off in a Week 5 college football showdown at the Fargodome. 

The Central Arkansas Bears have played three games so far this season and they were able to come away with wins in two of them. Central Arkansas won their first game of the season against Austin Peay and the third game of the season against Missouri State. The one loss for the Bears was in their second game against UAB, a game they lost 45-35. The last game wasn’t all that impressive and they probably have to feel good that they were able to come away with a victory. Central Arkansas only threw for 79 yards and on the ground they only rushed for 114 yards but they took advantage of good field position In this game to come away with victory, Central Arkansas is going to need to be a lot better or they will be 2-2 when this game is over.

On the other side of this matchup is the North Dakota State Bison who are playing only one game this fall with the rest of the season being postponed until the spring. NDUS won another National Championship last season, and if this was a full season that would be the expectation this year. This might be just another game for everyone else but for Trey Lance this is another big edition. In the 2021 draft Trevor Lawrence is probably the best quarterback, but many believe that Lance is second after him. Last season Lance had another big year throwing for 2,786 yards, and 28 touchdowns. Lance also rushed for 1,110 yards to lead the team. Last season NDSU averaged 37.2 points per game and in their one game of the fall season, they are going to look to run up the score. 


Check back later for trends. 

North Dakota State is the better team and they are going to have no issue running up the score in this game. Central Arkansas is going to have no answer. Lance is going to have at least 450 total yards and he will lead NDSU to a win and a cover of the spread.
