Manhattan, Kan.--I am in Manhattan tonight for two time defending champion North Dakota State's first game against the Big 12's Kansas State. And boy is it hot. It is 98 degrees as we approach opening kickoff.
This should be a good test for our champions. The Bison return most of the team that won that last two titles.
The Bison will be going against a team with six starters returning from the offensive line so I would anticipate them running the ball.
The Wildcats are starting a new quarterback in Jake Walters, while the Bison will counter with Brock Jensen.
I think the Bison will try to establish the running game as well especially given the heat and the fact that KSU is very young on their defensive front.
I look for this to be a very close game. I find it hard to believe that KSU will take NDSU lightly and thing but these Bison are very good too. I think this will be within a 10 point margin wiith KSU winning the game late.
But we shall see. I can't wait for this one to start.
