RUSS HONS: Photo Gallery — Homecoming 2016 — University Of North Dakota Vs. Southern Utah University

The University of North Dakota, behind quarterback Keaton Studsrud’s four touchdowns passes, defeated Southern Utah University 45-23 on Saturday in Grand Forks’ Alerus Center to remain perfect at 4-0 in the Big Sky Conference football standings. Studsrud was 20-for-27 through the air for 282 yards in the 2016 Homecoming victory as the Fighting Hawks won their fifth straight game after opening the season with two close losses. The victory over the Thunderbirds (3-3, 2-2 BSC) gave UND its first five-game winning streak during the program’s Division I era and first overall since opening the 2007 campaign with six-consecutive victories. That was the team’s final season at the Division II level. Fullback Kyle Norberg led UND in rushing with 73 yards on six carries, while Brady Oliveira added 64 yards on the ground and John Santiago 56. Both Oliveira and Santiago scored touchdowns. Studsrud’s touchdown passes were to Luke Stanley, Noah Wanzek, De’mun Mercer and Travis Toivonen. The Fighting Hawks return to Big Sky play on Saturday at Idaho State. Check out more photos from Russ Hons here.
