North Dakota State has won 11 consecutive games overall and five in a row against FBS opponents since 2010, though those streaks figure to be in jeopardy against a Big Ten squad that Bison coach Chris Klieman says might be the best theyve ever faced.Following back-to-back overtime home victories, North Dakota State -- the No. 1 team in the STATS FCS Top 25 -- will try to become the eighth FCS school to beat an FBS opponent this season when it visits Iowa -- the 13th-ranked Bowl Subdivision team -- on Saturday.Klieman, who grew up a Hawkeyes fan in Waterloo, Iowa, believes the Hawkeyes imposing size and overall physicality will be the biggest challenges for NDSU (2-0). Led by LeShun Daniels (195 yards, 3 TDs) and Akrum Wadley (170 yards, 3 TDs), Iowa has rushed for 410 yards over its two games and ranks 10th nationally with 6.3 yards per run.If we can control tempo the entire game and keep their offense off the field, have long drives, fatigue their defense and get points on the board, it only helps the team as a whole because it keeps our defense fresh and allows them to get stops and allows us to get back on the field, Daniels said.The Bison cant let that happen after allowing 275 rushing yards in their first two games. They also let Eastern Washingtons Gage Gubrud throw for 450 yards and four touchdowns in last weeks 50-44 win.C.J. Beathard has thrown for 427 yards with four scores and no picks for Iowa, which has racked up 87 points and 715 total yards. The Hawkeyes rolled past Iowa State by 39 points last weekend -- the biggest win over their rivals in coach Kirk Ferentzs 18 seasons.Beathards an exceptional player. These guys up front are a lot better than Eastern Washington or Charleston Southern ... this is a Big Ten offensive line, Klieman said.Theyre not going to beat themselves, so that being said, we have to eliminate the mistakes weve made to give ourselves a chance.Klieman would like his squad to cut down on its penalties -- particularly offensively -- and hes also hoping Easton Stick can continue to make strides. The sophomore made several key plays against the Eagles, completing 17 of 26 passes for 257 yards with two scores. Hes also run for 105 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries in the two games.Lance Dunn leads NDSUs rushing attack with 179 yards on nearly seven yards per carry. Fellow sophomore Darrius Shepherd has been the top target in the passing game with eight catches for 127 yards and two touchdowns.Theyll face an Iowa defense that showed improvement last week, holding the Cyclones to 291 yards and forcing Iowa States two quarterbacks to complete just 14 of 35 passes for 165 yards and one interception.When we talk about North Dakota State, they take a backseat to no one, Ferentz said. Theyre accustomed to winning. They know what it takes and theyve got good players who are well coached.Ill go out on a limb and predict this will be a really strong team, a really tough opponent for us.NDSU has gone 8-3 with a five-game winning streak against FBS programs, though that run has come against Kansas, Minnesota, Colorado State, Kansas State and Iowa State -- hardly national powerhouses. The Hawkeyes are seeking their 15th straight regular-season win and 10th in a row at home, which is a streak that started with a 31-14 victory over Illinois State last September.Itll be a daunting task, said Klieman, who began coaching at NDSU in 2011 and is 30-3 in his three seasons as head coach. Well have to come up with great game plans and our kids have to play exceptional football for us to have an opportunity to be successful. Make no mistake, since Ive been here this is the most complete team that the Bison will face.

Cheap Authentic Hoodies . LOUIS -- St. http://www.cheaphoodiesfromchina.com/ . The 28-year-old from Calgary matched his career best after missing just one shot in his two rounds of shooting in the mens 10-kilometre sprint competition. Smith finished in 23 minutes 15. Cheap Hoodies For Sale . Miller finished in two minutes, 6.09 seconds, one day before the first medal race on the Alpine schedule. The 36-year-old American also turned in the top time in Thursdays opening training session. Wholesale Hoodies . -- Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson asked his players a simple question during Fridays morning shootaround: How many of them had ever been on a team 14 games over . DURHAM, N.C. -- Grayson Allen showed what hes capable of when healthy -- and then went down with the latest in a run of injuries for No. 6 Duke.Allen scored all 21 of his points in the first half, then injured a toe late in Dukes 93-58 rout of Appalachian State on Saturday.Allen, who has been playing through a right foot injury suffered in last weeks loss to No. 5 Kansas, appeared to tweak that foot or ankle when he went down while going for a rebound with about 12 minutes to play and Duke leading by 35. He stayed on the bench for the rest of the game.Allen was not available for comment after the game because he was receiving treatment, team spokesman Cory Walton said.He just landed funny, and when that happens, it hurts, coach Mike Krzyzewski said. It really hurts. He looked fresher in that first half than he has the entire season, and hopefully well get there by Tuesday night when No. 24 Michigan State visits.Luke Kennard added 18 points and Amile Jefferson and Frank Jackson each finished with 15 for the Blue Devils (6-1), who have won four straight but once again must deal with an injury to a key player. Duke also has been without three injured freshman big men due to injuries and Krzyzewski says those three wont play against Michigan State either.Thats frustrating, but you do what you need to do and we dont ask anybody to feel sorry for us, and nobody will, Krzyzewski said. Its just a fact of life. I dont want, `Poor me. Im not `Poor me. Ive got good guys. ... Totally the opposite (team) of what we thought we would have.Kelvin Robinson scored 12 points for the Mountaineers (2-3), who average 89 points but for the first time were held to fewer than 70.Allen started shooting the ball better in his last game, hitting three 3s in a rout of William & Mary on Wednesday night, and he picked up right where he left off.He led the way during an opening half in which Duke scored a season-best 55 points and used a 24-12 burst to push the lead into the 20s. Allen keyed the run with two of his four 3s, and Jackson capped it with a layup that made it 53-31.Matt Jones added 10 pointts for Duke.ddddddddddddBIG PICTUREAppalachian State: The Mountaineers could pull a few positives from their first visit to Cameron Indoor Stadium since 1987. They found ways to score on Duke, hitting nine 3s and scoring 34 first-half points -- both the most allowed by Duke this season. That could give them a dose of confidence before their next visit to an ACC arena -- they are at North Carolina State on Dec. 15.We knew that they were going to bring pressure offensively, their defense against our offense, and we played way too fast, coach Jim Fox said. And when we started missing some shots, we kind of got stagnant. ... They got going, they made some shots. Ive been here before and thats happened, and it goes quick.Duke: For the second straight game, injured freshman forwards Harry Giles and Marques Bolden warmed up but didnt play. In their continued absence, Chase Jeter was once again the first post player off the bench, but freshman Javin DeLaurier was impressive and sophomore Antonio Vrankovic scored eight points in 19 minutes. Both could make a push for Jeters minutes going forward.POLL IMPLICATIONSDuke showed no evidence that it deserves to be ranked lower than No. 6, though the game against the Spartans should provide a more accurate benchmark.HIGHLIGHT REELThe play of the day came with about 7 minutes left in the first half when Jefferson pinned Emarius Logans layup attempt against the glass. Kennard grabbed the rebound to start the break the other way and lofted a perfect alley-oop pass to Jackson, who finished off the dunk to make it 37-21.UP NEXTAppalachian State: The Mountaineers remain in the state and will visit Charlotte on Monday night.Duke: The Blue Devils play their marquee home nonconference game Tuesday night with a visit from No. 24 Michigan State in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.---Follow Joedy McCreary at http://twitter.com/joedyap.---More AP college basketball: www.collegebasketball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25.
