The Sioux Falls Storm moved past the Bismarck Bucks 64-31 in Week 7 and used a strong rushing attack to lead the way. RB Calen Campbell became the first running back to top 100 yards in a game this season as he gashed the Bucks defense and scored four touchdowns. Campbell had rushing scores of 3,3, 33 and 10 yards. The former Lindenwood University RB finished his night rushing 16 times for 110 yards and the four touchdowns. He also added 27 kick return yards.
