From North Dakota to Texas and with Bison fans throughout the nation - tomorrow we'll be cheering "Go North Dakota!" The Bison football team of North Dakota State University headed to Texas this week and will face Sam Houston State in the NCAA Division I FCS Championship game tomorrow. Kick-off is at 12:00 p.m. (CST) in host city, Frisco, Texas. The game will be carried nationally on ESPN2.
The road to the championship game has been paved by a 13-1 season for North Dakota. No. 1 ranked Sam Houston has a 14-0 record. Included in their fan support are the Governors and Senators of the two states. North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple and Texas Gov. Rick Perry have placed a friendly wager on the game as have Senators Conrad and Hoeven!
