FARGO, ND--I am in Fargo for the first ever NDSU playoff game in the Fargodome. Robert Morris comes into this contest as the first ever Northeast Conference champion to make the FCS postseason. The Colonials enter this game with a 8-2 overall mark. NDSU enters this as the third place team from the Missouri Valley and with a 7-4 mark overall. Both teams enter this contest with a loss (RMU to Bryant and NDSU to Missouri State). Both teams are making their first FCS playoff appearances.
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
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 the UNI Dome right now awaiting the NDSU-UNI game. This is the season opener for UNI, where as NDSU has a game and a win, a big win over a BCS conference foe in Kansas. I just saw the score that Kansas defeated Georgia Southern, who was ranked in the FCS Top 25.
I will take that with a grain of salt for this one as UNI has won the two MVFC games played between these two teams so I think I am in for a good contest tonight.
And need to send a good shotout to
Well, I attended two more spring games over the weekend with my two boys---in Vermillion for the University of South Dakota game on Friday night and then in Fargo for the North Dakota State game Saturday afternoon. Here are a few photos from the games.
As you can see, I still have some rust on the photo taking. I hope to get that rust out by
