Mobridge (Wall Street Journal): The devil did not go down to Georgia on Saturday night. It was someone else.
Given a choice, Georgia Bulldog fans would rather have greeted the Devil.
Instead, the North Central South Dakota (Norcentral) Freaking Plovers stole the souls of 95,722 fans “Between the Hedges” by a score of 42-3.
The Mobridge Mauler offense didn’t fiddle around, rolling up 439 total yards.
Running back Seth Johnson led the way with 204 yards rushing and 3 TD on 22 carries.
Dan Tyson pitched in 175 yards and 2 TD. He was a perfect 8 for 8 on the day. His favorite target, wide receiver hauled in 5 of those tosses for 113 yards and one of the touchdowns.
There were high expectations for the Norcentral defense, and they did not disappoint. Big D held the Bulldogs to -5 yards rushing and crushed 2 Georgia drives with interceptions.
Next Saturday the Plovers open at home hosting #15 Army.
