Blow hole in this one...9-0 this year...and 3 National Championships in 4 years, 1 in progress vikings4123 Active Member Joined: Oct 20, 2018 Messages: 110 Likes Received: 35 Nov 8, 2018 #1 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chris_Klieman https://www.cbssports.com/college-football/news/north-dakota-state-wins-clinches-playoff-berth/ After Bohl announced that he was leaving to become the head coach of Wyoming, then athletic director Gene Taylor promoted Klieman to become the 30th head football coach in Bison history in 2014. After winning three consecutive National Championships and going 43–2 since 2011, the expectations for the 2014 team were not high. The Bison had lost their starting quarterback and a total of 30 seniors that graduated before the season started. But 2014 surprised everyone when he and future 2nd overall NFL draft pick Carson Wentz led the Bison to a 15–1 overall record and a fourth consecutive national championship by beating Illinois State in a close, hard-fought championship game. NDSU became the first Division 1 football program to win four consecutive championships. In 2015, the Bison continued their winning ways and ended the season 13–2 with a fifth consecutive national championship, the most by any NCAA football program in history. In 2016, the Bison again won their conference title, but lost in the FCS semifinals to James Madison, their first playoff loss in 6 years. They ended the year at 12–2, their sixth straight season with double-digit wins. The 2017 season continued the Bison dominance by again going 10–1 and winning their seventh consecutive MVFC title and avenging the previous years loss to James Madison by beating them in the Championship Game 17–13. It is Klieman's third National Championship in four seasons and the Bison's sixth in seven years.
