NDSU's Lance Dunn scores four touchdowns on four touches

  NDSU's Lance Dunn scored three rushing touchdowns on three carries along with his receiving touchdown.

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. 

The 5-9, 211-pound junior running back opened the Bison's scoring on their third play from scrimmage when he broke open a 61-yard touchdown run untouched.

Later in the first quarter following a Colonials fumble, Dunn punched it in from five yards out to give NDSU a 14-0 lead.

On his final carry of the day, similar to his first, Dunn outran the Robert Morris defense for a 45-yard touchdown to give NDSU a 49-0 lead.

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