FARGO, N.D. -- About the only thing that can stop the Bison buzz is a bye week.North Dakota State has a break in its schedule after enjoying an unprecedented three-day stretch on the national stage. The Bison first knocked off another big-time football power when they defeated Iowa on the road with a last-second field goal in a nationally televised game. The next day, they nearly became the first Football Championship Subdivision team to crack the Top 25 .And finally, the Bison faithful watched their prized alumnus, Philadelphia Eagles rookie quarterback Carson Wentz, dominate both the airtime and the Chicago Bears in a Monday night win.I was trying to count how many times North Dakota State was uttered during the Monday night broadcast, said Bison athletic director Matt Larsen, but there were so many that I lost track.Wentz, of course, has been watching his Bison and he saw the Iowa upset.I had it recorded, he said. I got home and watched the whole thing. I was pretty excited. Pretty excited for those guys. You know, a lot of those guys are my best friends so I was really excited for those guys and at the same time I really wasnt surprised.No one should be, not by now.The 23-21 victory at Iowa was North Dakota States sixth in a row over a Bowl Subdivision team and the fifth over a Power Five conference school. While college football pundits have for years been warning FBS teams about scheduling the five-time defending FCS champion, this one came against a ranked team that had playoff hopes.Larsen, Bison coach Chris Klieman and others associated say beating the Hawkeyes is the high-water mark of FBS wins for the Fargo school.Given where their program is, the year they had last year coming off the Rose Bowl appearance, and being ranked as high as they were, and it was televised in over 100 million homes ... all those things combined, really does make it the biggest FBS win that North Dakota State has had to date, Larsen said.Mike Kern, associate commissioner of the conference, said the game had the look and feel of the teams previous signature win, over Kansas State in 2013. Both times, the Bison used ball control and a dominating fourth quarter to come from behind.The K-State game was an eye-opener in that it announced to the world that Bison nation has arrived, Kern said. This past weekends game was more of a statement of, `We are still here and as good as ever.The Bison received 74 points in the AP poll, the 27th highest total for the week and most ever for an FCS program. Ten FCS teams have received votes in the poll since 2007, after Appalachian States victory at Michigan prompted the AP to declare that voters could include teams playing in what was once called I-AA.It was also only the fourth time that an FCS program has beaten an FBS team -- and the first time for the Missouri Valley Football Conference, which last season sent five teams to the playoffs that have long been a staple in the FCS.With the Bison entering conference play, they likely wont have a chance for another eye-popping win this season. Still, Larsen said it was humbling to receive the recognition and called it more of a bonus than anything.It also revived the usual round of questions.Are the Bison considering a move up to FBS? They are not. Have the FBS teams on the Bison schedule -- Oregon in 2020 and Colorado in 2024 -- asked to buy out their contracts? Not yet. And will this allow the Bison to steal a bevy of recruits from FBS teams in the region?Probably not, Klieman said.Lets be real on this. Were still not beating Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, Wisconsin on recruits, the coach said. You would like to think were in the conversation, but its still difficult. Its just hard to beat a Big Ten school. You hope it allows us to compete better with the people we need to compete with, which are the high level mid-majors.For now, though, Klieman and his team will enjoy the weekend off -- and the hoopla.From a football standpoint, its as big as its been, he said. Not as big as the Carson Wentz of last year, throughout the winter and the spring and the draft. But obviously our players and our coaches deserve all the attention theyre getting because of how well the plans were and how well the guys played.---AP freelance writer Patrick Rose contributed to this report.

BRASILIA, Brazil -- The top-ranked team in the world will likely be the undercard in womens Olympic soccer on Friday.The United States, the three-time defending champions, will take on Sweden in Brasilia. But the late game in Belo Horizonte between Australia and host Brazil may be the more intriguing match.The Aussies and Brazilians met at the Womens World Cup last year, and it was Australia that advanced by beating Marta and Co. 1-0 in the round of 16.As Olympic hosts this time, Brazil is getting a boost from its soccer-loving public. Although womens soccer does not enjoy the popularity that the sport has in the United States, for instance, the Brazilians drew a sellout crowd to their last match, a scoreless draw against South Africa in the Amazon city of Manaus.Fans, as usual, shouted Marta!

Sweden, ranked sixth, struggled in the group stage with a 5-1 loss to host Brazil and finished 1-1-1.Were going to play the best team in the world, Olympic champions and the World Cup champions, and that is challenging and inspiring, Sundhage said Thursday. All the pressure is on the Americans.Were not playing well in the attack, but weve done some good things defending, and if you can put those things together, we have a chance to win.Tenth-ranked Canada won all of its group matches -- including a pair against top-five teams -- but drew a tough quarterfinal opponent in No. 3 France.
