FARGO, N.D.--After a little break in my coverage, I am back this Saturday in Fargo to see the top two teams in the GPI battle in this Missouri Valley Football Conference matchup.
Both teams have had a win over a BCS Big 12 team and both are ranked in the top of the ranks defensively.
This is the Trees Bowl at the Fargodome--the annual game that is sponsered by the ND Forestry Service.
Both teams are also coming off of impressive wins last week.
Well, I am doing a tour of football in going to three games in three days. I will be traveling to three states in three days. I will be covering the following games starting with a game today.
Thurs., Aug. 29 Hampton @ Western Illinois
Fri, Aug. 30 North Dakota State @ Kansas State
Sat. Aug. 31 Arkansas-Pine Bluff @ Arkansas State
This should be fun with a number of miles on the road. I will be blogging from each game.
What a great
Frisco, TX--I have arrived in the pressbox at FC Dallas Stadium. It is a cloudy day right now but the sun is supposed to come out by kickoff if the weather forecast is correct. It is 44 degrees right now with a high supposedly to be at 54 this afternoon.
This rematch as I stated before this is the same two schools to play as last year in this game but both have several differences that should in my opinion make this a closer contest that I believe won't be decided until the final
I went to the pep rally for NDSU fans and alumni at Dr. Pepper Park, the home of a AA baseball team here in Frisco.
They expected 8000 fans and nearly 10,000 fans showed for the festivities. After last night, I think the NDSU fan population at the game today will be nearly 75% of FC Dallas Stadium.
Here are a few photos from the pep rally last night.
Just a little over four
By this time tomorrow, we will have a winner. Will it be Sam Houston State getting revenge on their loss in this game last year or will North Dakota State repeat as champions?
That question will be answered tomorrow. Today, we saw each team's last practice and each team with a short press conference before the game.
Here are some more photos from today.
I can't wait until tomorrow
