FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Quincy Patterson passed for two touchdowns and rushed for two more as North Dakota State powered past Northern Iowa 34-20 in a showdown of Missouri Valley Football Conference powers.

Leading 13-10 at halftime, Patterson stretched the Bison lead with a pair of third-quarter touchdowns. He scored on a keeper from the 4 and later rolled out for a 3-yard toss to Noah Gindorff as the unbeaten Bison pushed their lead to 27-10.

Theo Day was 12-of-31 passing for 257 yards and a touchdown for the Panthers, but was sacked five times for a loss of 35 yards.
