We're about 10 minutes from kickoff.
UND's seniors and their parents are being recognized on the field.
Crowd again will be small. Between 6,000 and 7,000 is my guess. Students again are a no-show. They must be resting up to follow Brad Schlossman's blog for tonight's Sioux hockey game at Michigan Tech.
UND fumbles pooch kickoff, SO's Matt Markham recovers at the Sioux 23.
Tyler Crowley 23 field goal, 12:17 remaining. Southern Oregon 3, UND 0
Brandon Hellevang 46 field goal, 9:02 remaining. UND 3, Southern Oregon 3.
Ismael Bamba's 30-yard kickoff return and Mitch Sutton's running get Sioux on the board.
Mitch Sutton fumbles, SO's Randy Tyler recovers at UND 40. Two fumbles for UND on its first three possessions. SO is driving
UND's Kenny Watkins intercepts a Paul Sweeney pass at the Sioux 5
Sioux can't pick up a first down and punt; SO ball at Sioux 43 with 2:43 to go
End of first quarter, UND 3, SO 3. Raiders, however, are driving and have a first down at the Sioux 21
A very uninspiring first quarter for UND.
Cole McKenzie 21 pass from Paul Sweeney, Crowley kick, 14:55 remaining. SO 10, UND 3
Sioux are in trouble with another NAIA team, this one not nearly as good as the first one. McKenzie was wide open on TD pass.
Sioux punt on their first possesion of the quarter. Sioux offense totally ineffective.
Sioux have the ball at their 34 with 8:43 to go, trailing 10-3.Sioux fail on fourth-and-2 at SO 35. Sutton dropped for a yard loss on pitch play to the right. Sioux offense is having a very difficult day. Line can't make a surge and SO clearly has the momentum. Sioux are in big trouble with 5:11 to go
SO quarterback Sweeney hits McKenzie for 57-yard gain to Sioux 3.
Vance Beach 2 pass from Sweeney, Crowley kick, 1:37 remaining. Southern Oregon 17, UND 3
Sioux, right now, are headed for a horrible home loss against a 2-6 NAIA team that averages around 13 points per game. Sioux completely flat on both sides of the ball.
Sioux driving to SO 6
Ismael Bamba 6 pass from Landry, Hellevang kick, 0:33 remaining. Southern Oregon 17, UND 10
It's all Landry and Bamba on the drive. Don't know why there hasn't been more of that earlier this half. Still, UND is in a lot of trouble.
SO fumbles kickoff, UND's Ross Cochran returns it to the SO 3
UND first-goal on 2 after pass interference on SO
Catlin Solum 2 pass from Landry, Hellevang kick, 0:15 remaining. UND 17, Southern Oregon 17
Finally, Sioux have something going.
Sioux score 14 points in final 33 seconds. Southern Oregon will receive the second-half kickoff. Sioux locker room should be an interesting place to be after UND's first-half performance, sans the final 33 seconds.
Halftime stats: UND 164 total yards, SO 151. Landry 11-15-0, 109 yards, 2 TD.
The biggest stat: UND's two fumbles. UND has had trouble hanging on to the ball. The Sioux have fumbled four times. Sioux also can't run as they've managed only 55 yards on 16 carries.
Both teams go three-and-out to open third quarter
Hellevang 44 field goal, 10:58 remaining. UND 20, Southern Oregon 17
Dominique Hawkins blocks a Southern Oregon punt, but UND can't pick up a yard
Southern Oregon's Crowley misses 47-yard field goal attempt on Raiders' next possession. They drove down the field behind Baldwin's running. 6:56 to go in the third, UND 20, Southern Oregon 17
Jarrel Davis 7 run, Hellevang kick, 5:09 remaining. UND 27, Southern Oregon 17
Landry's 51-yard pass to Mitch Sutton sets up TD. Davis flagged for 15-yards for celebration, which looked more like a prayer in the end zone. Guess it's illegal to kneel down in the end zone after a score
Sioux driving again, but Damilyn Tanner picks off Landry deep in SO territory. Sioux had chane to put the game away but now SO is driving to end the third. THey have a first-and-10 at the Sioux 12 to begin fourth quarter.
Brandon Baldwin 7 run, Crowley kick, 14:53 remaining. UND 27, Southern Oregon 24
Landry's pick lets SO back into the game.

6:23 to go, SO has the ball at its 23 facing second-and-3
3:55 to play, UND leads 27-24. Sioux offense has done nothing since the interception that led to SO's third TD. Sioux first-and-10 at the SO 39 following good punt return by Erik Mersereau.
Hellevang 22 field goal, 0:35 remaining, UND 30, Southern Oregon 24
Sioux trying to hang on
FINAL: UND 30, Southern Oregon 24
It wasn't pretty, a far cry from last week's win against Cal Poly.
