North Dakota State running back Lance Dunn had the Midas touch Saturday afternoon. Every time he touched the football, the Bison scored a touchdown.
Dunn had just three carries on the day for NDSU, rusulting in three rushing touchdowns on 111 yards. That's an average of 37 yards per carry. His lone reception resulted in a 10-yard touchdown as NDSU cruised to an easy 56-0 victory against Robert Morris at the Fargodome.

There may be players who put up more overall numbers this weekend, but none will be as efficient as Dunn.
