FARGO, N.D. (AP) -- Sam Ojuri and Zach Vraa scored touchdowns, and North Dakota State rode its top-rated defense to a 14-7 victory over Wofford on Saturday in the quarterfinals of the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs.

The Bison (12-1) forced two turnovers, blocked a field goal and did not allow an offensive touchdown. They advanced to the semifinals against Georgia Southern.

Wofford's best shot at a tying touchdown ended on downs at the NDSU 6 with less than 4 minutes left.

Wofford (9-4) scored on a 35-yard interception by Blake Wylie in the second quarter. Standout Terriers fullback Kyle Breitenstein, the No. 2 rusher in FCS, ran for 135 yards. Wofford attempted only seven passes.

Cole Jirek and Andre Martin Jr. recovered fumbles and Anthony LaVoy blocked a field goal for NDSU.
