FARGO, N.D.--I am in Fargodome for the Dakota Marker battler between the Jackrabbits and the Bison. NDSU has lost the last three matchups between these two teams. NDSU sits at 6-3 and would need to win this game and the next one at Missouri State to assure themselves of an at-large berth to the playoffs. SDSU sits at 4-5 this season and basically need to win out to get a winning season but are out of the playoff consideration after gaining a spot last year.
This is the 97th meeting
DES MOINES, IA--I spent the day in Des Moines today with my two sons. What beautiful weather for the midwest this Halloween eve--mid 60s for the game. I watched the Bulldogs win this matchup after taking the lead just before the half at 14-10.

Turnovers have hurt the Panthers in weeks path so I think if they can hold onto the ball that they will have win today but it should be a closely
NORMAL, IL--I am in Normal, IL to see NDSU play Illinois State. It is the Redbirds' homecoming game today so the parking lot is quite full. It is a nice day in central Illinois with a 70+ degree day and not a cloud in the sky.
I am in Cedar Falls for this game, which has probably the best 0-3 team in the country in South Dakota State playing Northern Iowa, who is 1-2 themselves. It is always a good temperature inside the UNI Dome -- 72 degrees.
