FCS #1 North Dakota State at FCS #12 Montana 2:30 pm ESPN
It isn't Ames, Iowa this season for the North Dakota State program that has dominated FCS Football the past four seasons. Can the four-time defending champions make it five in a row during the 2015 season?
The Bison carry both the MVfC banner, as they travel to Montana to kickoff against a Grizzlies program that returns 23 starters from a team that were a runner-up in the Big Sky Conference, last year.
Cedar Rapids Washington alum is on the offense line for this Montana team:
68 McCauley Todd OL 6-7 295 JR Cedar Rapids, IA
The Bison has former Iowa preps on the roster, as well.
Next Saturday, FCS #2 Illinois State, another MVfC program, will open at Kinnick Stadium vs. the Iowa Hawkeyes. The Bison are scheduled to travel to Iowa City in 2016 to also face off with the Iowa Hawkeyes. Iowa defeated Northern Iowa in the 2014 opener 31-23.
