FLORENCE, AL (AP) - David Nadeau's 32-yard field goal as time expired lifted Minnesota-Duluth to a 20-17 victory over Delta State in the Division II national championship game.
Cody Eich's 20-yard interception return Saturday gave the Bulldogs (15-0) the ball at midfield with 52 seconds left in the game, and Chase Vogler's 25-yard pass to Brian Hanson got Minnesota-Duluth within range for the winning field goal.
Delta State (11-4) had tied the game on Matt Snyder's 22-yard field goal with 2:22 left.
It's the second national title in school history for Minnesota-Duluth, which also went 15-0 in winning the 2008 championship.
The game saw five lead changes and one tie, but four turnovers and lack of production in the red zone proved costly to the Statesmen.
