As if driving to Bismarck, North Dakota by bus wasn't far enough for St. Cloud State, but the Huskies had to overcome a challenge with one of the teams buses when the glass on the side door was broken. They overcame the challenge to beat the University of Mary 20-13.

Michael Walker rushed for a pair of touchdowns, both in the first half for the Huskies. Walker led a Huskies running attack that compiled 174 yards on the ground.
