FARGO, N.D.--I am in the Fargodome and it is the first time seeing the new turf on the floor. This turf looks impressive and much better than the old style Astrotuf that was here before. And what a game I have today with the #3 and #1 ranked teams respectively meeting in this one.
Winter has come early to the north country with a little snow on the ground with temperatures right now in the lower 40s. I drove throw some snow showers on my way to North Dakota last night. But it
CEDAR FALLS, Iowa--I am at the UNIDome today to see the top ranked NDSU Bison visit the UNI Panthers. NDSU comes into this game undefeated at 3-0, while UNI sits at 1-3. It is a beautiful upper 70s/lower 80s day right now and would be a great outdoor game today but we are inside the dome where a near capacity crowd is expected.
This is the Missouri Valley Football Conference opener for NDSU, while UNI plays their second league game. UNI is coming off a loss at Youngstown State
IOWA CITY, Iowa--I am in Kinnick Stadium today to see if UNI can do a little better against their second Big 10 game of the year. Remember, UNI narrowly lost to Wisconsin two weeks ago 26-21 and had a chance with the ball late to take the lead.
Last week, the Panthers had little opposition when they played their first home game of the year against DII Central (OH) State--winning 59-0.
It was just three years ago when UNI almost beat the Hawkeyes when they had two
I went Des Moines last night with my two sons to watch Rob Ash's Montana State team trip to Des Moines, to play his former team in Drake. Ash coached Drake for 18 years before going to Bozeman five years ago.
The Bulldogs gave the #4 ranked Bobcats all they could handle and it proved to me that the Pioneer Football League deserves to have its champion play in the FCS 20-team playoff field.
MSU wound up winning 34-24 but Drake lead into the fourth quarter 24-21

MADISON, Wis--I am in Madison today to see if Northern Iowa can pull off the upset against the Badgers. It is a nice day in central Wisconsin with temps right now in the upper 70s.
Wisconsin is ranked #12 in both of the FBS polls. UNI is ranked #9 in the College Sporting News and Sports Network Polls within the preseason.
Coach Mark Farley is entering his 12th season as the head man for UNI and has won from the start--winning 60 of his 80 contests.
