FARGO, N.D. -- Easton Stick threw for 188 yards and a score and added 83 yards rushing and two touchdowns and North Dakota State controlled the clock for nearly 41 minutes in its 36-10 win over South Dakota State in the FCS Quarterfinals on Saturday.

The Bison have won 22-straight postseason games.

Stick's first touchdown, a 3-yard run, capped a 20-play, 82 yard drive that consumed 12 minutes, nine seconds and gave NDSU (12-1) a 14-10 lead with 1:48 left in the first half.

A 5-yard touchdown run by Brady Mengarelli and a 34-yard field goal by Chase Vinatieri gave the Jackrabbits (9-4) a 10-0 lead with 4:33 left in the first quarter. Lance Dunn's 49-yard scoring run about three minutes later was the first of 36 unanswered points for the Bison.

South Dakota State's Taryn Christion, who had 141 yards rushing and 303 yards passing in a 19-17 win over NDSU on Oct. 15, finished with just 155 yards passing with one interception on Saturday.

The Jackrabbits had just 192 total yards.
