NDSU is the best football program in upper Midwest & we invite ALL Minnesota fans to come to GAMEDAY and jump on the bandwagon. 50% of NDSU are Minnesotans and most of the bison players. The fanbase will bring 25,000 fans to this breaking the 18,000 record of GAMEDAY.

PR Nightmare for Sid & Dave, and the University of Minnesota. The Golden Gophers have NEVER hosted an ESPN College Gameday and probably never will. Minnesota won't play the Bison in football anymore because they know they'd get beat. I LOVE THIS. Go Bison!

They had a choice between sites at Stanford and NDSU. Real tough choice. One is in, bar none, the most beautiful part of the country (SF Bay Area) and the other's in a dirt field. It's like choosing between a new Ferrari 458 Italia and a 10 year old Ford Minivan that hasn't been washed in 3 years.

ndsulakes - Best program in the Upper Midwest? LOL! That distinction goes to my Wisconsin Badgers. It's not even close. Nobody gives a hoot about NDSU football in the MSP metro area. Then again, save for a few diehards, nobody gives a hoot about Gopher football. A crowd of 25K? So, you're saying that 95% percent of the state will be there. Big deal.

So wait, ESPN comes to Fargo, and some people have the gall to be upset they're not showcasing the campus enough? That's a joke, right? This is E-S-P-N. The fact that they're in Fargo to begin with should be enough. That being said, go Bison. It's been fun to watch at least one team win championships with Minnesota players.

Lmao! ESPN isn't even going to be on campus and they have to bus in students. This will be the lowest rated Gameday since no one outside of NoDak cares about the Bison, lol!

I'm happy that NDSU is getting their moment in the sun. They deserve it. MANY years ago I went to college at Moorhead State. Even back then NDSU had a very good team. They would beat us handly. But we all thought that NDSU sounded like an STD. So we just called them Moo U. Maybe with a bit of jealousy.

Live in Montana.. Big Sky Conference took in University of North Dakota. Wouldn't deal with NDSU. Montana State and U of Montana knew they couldn't beat the Bison. So we don't play them.....

Imagine if they were playing the Gophers? Why aren't they playing the Gophers?
