2 NDSU players propose to girlfriends on field after big win

FARGO, N.D. (AP) Two women have rings of their own following North Dakota State's win in the Football Championship Subdivision title game - not championship rings but engagement rings.

WDAY-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1u2VopB ) that two NDSU offensive linemen proposed to their girlfriends while fans were storming the field in Frisco, Texas, following NDSU's 29-27 win over Illinois State. It was the fourth consecutive national title for the Bison.

Zac Johnson proposed to Trisha Goerts while Jesse Hinz popped the question to Gretchen Folkerts. Both women said yes.

Hinz and Folkerts likely will wed this summer, while Johnson and Goerts are eyeing a summer 2015 wedding.
