NEWS
Homecoming: Cade Cannon signs with NDSU



Fargo

After winning their sixth FCS national title in seven years a couple months ago NDSU scored another big win yesterday when former Bismarck High School QB Cade Cannon announced his intention to sign with the Bison to play his final season of college football. Cannon led the Demons to a state championship in 2013 before signing with Minnesota.

Cannon was the Gophers starting QB for parts of the 2014 and 2015 season before an ulnar injury forced him to move to wide receiver. A few games into the 2016 football season Cannon announced he was leaving Minnesota and joining the Tampa Bay Rays, who drafted him in 2013.

Cannon played well in the 2016 Arizona Fall League and earned an invite to spring training in 2017. After that he was assigned to single A Bowling Green. He was called up to AA Montgomery at the end of June where he remained through the end of the season.

Cannon is ranked in the top ten for Rays prospects on most lists and there was speculation that he had a shot at making the 40 man roster and possibly even earning a spot in Tampa Bay next season. Despite that Cannon is coming back home to North Dakota for one last hurrah.

"It was definitely a huge decision for me." Cannon explained. "I talked to a bunch of people. Cody of course (Cade's younger brother, a junior receiver at NDSU), Chris Streveler (Cannon's former teammate at Minnesota who was the QB at South Dakota for the past two seasons), and a ton of people in the Rays' organization. I didn't want to do this without their blessing."

Cannon will replace Easton Stick, who elected to try his luck in the upcoming NFL draft.

"I talked to Easton too." Cannon said. "He was a big help and a great resource."

Cannon will join Trey Lance, Holden Hotchkiss and Noah Sanders in the NDSU QB room.

"Nothing's been promised." Cannon said when asked if Head Coach Chris Klieman had guaranteed that Cannon would be the starting quarterback. "That needs to be earned."

Cannon said the chance to play with his younger brother Cody was a huge factor in his decision.

"I never got to throw a TD to Cody in a real game so I'm definitely hoping to have that opportunity now." He said.

"I got to be on the sideline at the national championship and a couple other games and the atmosphere and attitude and the level of excitement was just overwhelming. It's incredible what they've built there and I can't really even explain how excited I am to be a part of it all."

In just 18 games at Minnesota Cannon threw for 40 touchdowns and ran for 37 more. In 2016 as a receiver he caught two touchdown passes, ran for one and returned a kickoff for another score before leaving the program after three games.

"We're incredibly excited. That goes without saying." Klieman said. "Not only does Cade bring incredible talent to the program but the experience he has, you know, playing at a high level in the Big Ten and his time in baseball. He's going to be a huge addition for us."

We'll likely get a look at Cannon during the Green and Gold Spring game on April 20th.

The Bison begin their title defense on September 1st against Cal Poly.

NDSU Offense puts up strong showing in Green and Gold game
THE BISON HELD THEIR ANNUAL SPRING GAME

April 28, 2018



FARGO, N.D. – The QB situation at NDSU has seen some big changes over the past few months. With Easton Stick leaving early for the NFL and former Minnesota Gopher Cade Cannon joining his brother Cody in Fargo there were questions about what the Bison offense might look like in 2018.

If the Green and Gold game is any indication then "really good" is the answer.

In what was more of a series of drills and drives than an actual game the Bison offense was mostly lighting it up against the defense with Cade Cannon leading his offensive group to four scores on their possessions. Cannon ran for a 42 yard score and connected with Darrius Shepherd, his brother Cody Cannon and Nate Jenson for touchdowns. Cannon then turned things over to Holden Hotchkiss, who led the offense to scores on two of his four possessions. Hotchkiss connected with Christian Watson for one score and handed it off to Adam Cofield for another.

The defense did make some solid plays against both offensive groups, including a stop on fourth and three on Lance's second possession and a strong showing in the red zone on the final possession of the "game".

"We definitely liked what we were seeing out there today." Offensive coordinator Courtney Messingham said after the event. "We've got a lot of talent on the offensive side of the ball and we operated like a well oiled machine today so that's encouraging for us."

North Dakota State will open their regular season on September 1st at home against Cal Poly.

North Dakota State Picked to Win 2018 MVFC Title

North Dakota State has been tabbed as the Missouri Valley Football Conference pre-season favorite in a poll conducted by league coaches, media and sports information directors. NDSU has been picked first in the pre-season poll for seven-straight seasons.

North Dakota State has earned the league title for seven-straight years, four times sharing it with another league school. This year, NDSU was a unanimous choice, receiving all 39 first-place tallies and a total of 390 points. It marks just the second time in league history that a team received all of the first-place votes in the MVFC pre-season poll (NDSU also did it in 2013.)



South Dakota State earned the second spot in the poll, finishing with 340 total points, followed by UNI (270), Youngstown State (258), Illinois State (248) and South Dakota (206).

The league is coming off a season in which five teams represented the conference in the playoffs. The MVFC has had four or more playoff teams in four-straight seasons (earning five each in 2014, 2015 and last year). Western Illinois was one of the league's five playoff teams a year ago, and the Leathernecks -- with new head coach Jared Elliott at the helm -- are picked seventh with 163 total points. Western is followed by Southern Illinois (139), Missouri State (90) and Indiana State (41) in the voting.

A pre-season favorite has claimed the league crown 20 times (in 32 previous polls). North Dakota State was picked to win the league last season, and the Bison earned both the league title and the national title (following a 17-13 win over previously unbeaten James Madison in the NCAA Division I Football Championship game in Frisco, Texas).

Valley Football is celebrating its 34th season in 2018. In its first 33 seasons the league owns eight national crowns. MVFC teams combined for an 8-4 record in last year's playoffs, while North Dakota State and South Dakota State both reached the semifinals. That marks the third time in the past four years in which two league teams played in the semis. North Dakota State, meanwhile, represented the league in the title game, marking the 7th-straight year at least one MVFC team has reached the championship game -- an FCS record. Notably, MVFC teams have combined for a 52-23 record in the playoffs this decade. Only one other league has as many as 20 wins since 2010 (CAA Football is next best with 37.)

The 2018 season begins Thursday, Aug. 30, with four league teams in action. Nine non-conference games feature road matchups against FBS opponents. An MVFC school has recorded a win against an FBS school in each of the past eight seasons, setting a league record in 2016 with four that year. Conference play begins Thursday, Sept. 27, as Indiana State hosts UNI in the first league tilt of the season.

The MVFC will announce its pre-season all-conference teams this week (Tuesday-Offense; Wednesday-Defense). North Dakota State tops the league with 11 total selections, including a league-best eight on the first-team unit. South Dakota State, meanwhile, has the second-most selections, with eight total honorees. Youngstown State has five first-team selections, meanwhile, which is second-best to NDSU.

Game Recap: Football | 9/1/2018 6:55:00 PM
Bison Roll to 52-7 Win Over Cal Poly in Season Opener

07 0-1
52 1-0


FARGO, N.D. -
One of the things Cade Cannon said he was excited about in joining North Dakota State was an opportunity to throw a touchdown pass to his younger brother Cody, a Bison wide receiver. It didn't take very long for that to become a reality as the Cannon brothers connected for a 68 yard score on the first offensive play of the 2018 season.

After a somewhat slow start the Bison led 7-0 after the first quarter but pulled away with a trio of touchdowns in the second quarter. Cade Cannon scored on an 11 yard run, Bruce Anderson ran in from a yard out and Cade and Cody connected again for a one yard score.

NDSU increased their lead to 45-0 in the third quarter via a Cam Pederson field goal, a Cannon TD pass to Darrius Shepherd and another Anderson TD run. After that Cal Poly got their only score of the game, cutting the lead to 45-7.

The Bison added a Lance Dunn touchdown run in the fourth before getting the second teamers some work.

NDSU racked up 52 points and nearly 600 yards of total offense while holding Cal Poly to just seven points and under 300 total yards.

Cade Cannon threw for 316 yards and three scores on 16 of 20 passing in the win while also running for another score along with 109 yards on the ground. Bruce Anderson added a pair of rushing scores and Lance Dunn also scored. Cody Cannon caught three of Cade's passes, tallying 84 yards and a pair of scores while Darrius Shepherd led the team with 132 yards on seven receptions, also scoring a touchdown.

"It was a solid win. We're number one for a reason and it was good to get out there and show that off." Head Coach Chris Klieman said following the big win.

"It was pretty special absolutely." Cade Cannon responded when asked about connection with Cody on the first play of the game for a big score. "I'll remember that one for sure. I was hoping to get that ball but I'm not sure where it ended up. We'd probably be fighting over it anyway."

North Dakota State returns to action on Saturday, Sept. 15, against North Alabama. Kickoff is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. at Gate City Bank Field at the Fargodome.

CODY CANNON CELEBRATES A FIRST QUARTER TD RECEPTION

Game Recap: Football | 9/29/2018 5:44:00 PM
Bison Take Back Dakota Marker With Close Win Over Jackrabbits

34 2-1, 0-1
37 4-0, 1-0


FARGO, N.D. -
Cade Cannon connected with Cody Cannon for an 18 yard score late in the fourth quarter as No. 1-ranked North Dakota State reclaimed the Dakota Marker with a 37-34 victory over third-ranked South Dakota State in the Missouri Valley Football Conference opener for both teams Saturday, Sept. 29.

Cody Cannon caught a 15-yard TD pass early in the first quarter to give NDSU a 7-0 lead after their first possession. His second TD came with 23 seconds left in the game and put the Bison up 37-34. The Bison defense did the rest, forcing three straight incompletions by Taryn Christion after a short gain by Isaac Wallace on the Jacks first play.

The Bison improve to 4-0 on the season with the win while SDSU falls to 2-1.

Cade Cannon threw for 202 yards and two touchdowns along with an interception as the Bison improved to 9-6 in the Dakota Marker series since 2004. Jabril Cox and Robbie Grimsley each made eight tackles to lead the NDSU defense.

The Jackrabbits tied things up at 7-7 on a 61-yard TD run from Isaac Wallace on their first offensive possession of the game.

Bruce Anderson, who ran for 111 yards in the game, put the Bison back on top with a five yard touchdown run at the start of the second quarter.



South Dakota State answered right back with a Christion TD pass to Cade Johnson from three yards out.

The back and forth continued as NDSU made it 21-14 via a two yard touchdown run by Cade Cannon late in the second quarter. Cannon went up and over the SDSU defense for the score and landed hard in the endzone but popped right up to celebrate with his teammates.



SDSU's Chase Vinatieri and NDSU's Cam Pedersen exchanged field goals before halftime, making it 24-17 NDSU at the break.

The Jacks knotted it up at 24 each when Wallace scored on a four yard run to cap an eight play 73 yard drive on their first possession after halftime.

Pederson added a pair of field goals in the third quarter for the Bison and Vinatieri tacked one on for the Jacks to make it 30-27 Bison after three.

North Dakota State threatened early in the fourth quarter but Cannon had a pass picked off near mid field.



Christion led the Jacks into scoring position then capped off the drive with a TD strike to Adam Anderson with just under nine minutes to play, giving them a 34-30 lead over the Bison.

After exchanging punts Cade Cannon and the NDSU offense got the ball back at their own 25 yard line with 2:33 left on the clock. After a five yard run by Lance Dunn Cannon connected with Darius Shepherd for a gain of 13 yards and a first down at the 43. Anderson carried for gains of 12 and 7 yards, down to the 38 where the Bison called a time out with 1:27 left to play. Back to back ten yard runs by Anderson set up a first down at the South Dakota State 18 yard line with 31 seconds left on the clock.

Following a timeout Cannon led the team back out.

Cannon set up in the shotgun with an empty backfield. He took the snap from Tanner Volson and dropped back. The pass protection was good and SDSU only rushed four. After looking to his right Cannon saw his brother Cody break inside on a post route on the left side. Cade delivered a strike that Cody hauled in just outside the hash marks at the eight yard line. He turned upfield at the hashes and beat a pair of Jacks defenders to the endzone for the go ahead score. Pederson nailed the point after to make it 37-34 Bison.



Pederson's ensuing kickoff sailed through the endzone and SDSU took over. Christion handed off to Wallace on first down, trying to catch NDSU's dime defense sleeping on the run but linebacker Dan Marlette dragged him down after a gain of two. SDSU used their first time out. After that Christion had a deep pass down the left sideline intended for Anderson knocked away by Jaylaan Wimbush. Christion missed C.J. Wilson on an out route and Jabril Cox broke up a pass intended for Kallan Hart on fourth down.

Holden Hotchkiss stepped in for Cannon to take a knee and the celebration began as the Bison reclaimed the Dakota Marker.



NDSU had a 455-357 edge in total yards and the Bison converted 8 of 12 third-down opportunities compared to 4 of 10 for the Jacks.

Christion finished 19 of 29 passing for 202 yards, Wallace finished with a game-high 110 yards on the ground, and linebacker Christian Rozeboom made a game-high 12 tackles for SDSU.

North Dakota State goes on the road for its next two games against Northern Iowa and Western Illinois. NDSU and UNI are scheduled for a 1 p.m. kickoff Saturday, Oct. 6, at the UNI-Dome in Cedar Falls, Iowa.
