Today, Jensen was among the first 20 players listed on the Walter Payton Award watchlist, better known as the Heisman of the FCS level.

Jensen has went 32-5 as the starting quarterback for the Bison, and was named the FCS Title game MVP last year, after leading NDSU to it's 2nd straight national championship.

Entering his final season at NDSU, He needs 51 completions and just over 12-hundred passing yards to become the school's all-time leader in both categories.

and SDSU standout Zach Zenner.
