FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Hang on before you chalk up the Football Championship Subdivision title game as a rematch.

The coaches at North Dakota State and Sam Houston State said Thursday their teams are not carbon copies from a year ago.

The most obvious changes were made with assistant coaches, where NDSU needed to replace its defensive coordinator and the Bearkats brought in practically a new offensive staff. Both units are even better than a year ago.

The Bison, who won last year's game 17-6, will put their top-rated defense against Sam Houston State's No. 2 scoring offense in the Jan. 5 game in Frisco, Texas.

Fritz has improved a passing game led quarterback Brian Bell, who ranks 11th in FCS in passing efficiency.

NDSU's defense features All-American cornerback in Marcus Williams and linebackers Grant Olson and Travis Beck.
