    Release: October 02, 2012
    NDSU Athletics released the Bison Game Day app for iPhone and Android users Tuesday. The app will enhance the fan experience on Bison Game Day and offer exclusive game day content for fans who tailgate or attend the game.

    What is it?

    The Bison Game Day app will provide Bison fans with exclusive game day content for football and basketball home games. From special deals, team and opponent updates, and forecast alerts for tailgating, fans will be on top of their game for Bison Game Day. Fans can share their Bison Pride with friends by uploading a game day photo to Facebook via the app. Turn on the strobe light with thousands of others when the Fargodome lights go down before the game for a green and yellow light show.

    The tailgating experience has greatly improved for the 2012 season with more entertainment and vendors in new locations. The map on the app helps tailgaters find designated tailgating lots, merchandise, food vendors and kids activities.

    The Bison Game Day app will promote football and basketball home game days.

    The strobe flashes both green then yellow. oops, Gabe already had that in his post above, redundant. Still the strobe should be cool.

    The strobe idea is totally badass. A few folks tried to get a thing going last season where we tried getting students to hold up their phones during the pre-game, but this is even better. I wonder how many students have smart phones?

    OK, just checking it out now and the gameday photo is feature is straight genius. You sign in with Facebook and it automatically posts a picture taken to the NDSU athletics facebook page. That's awesome. Having the school song handy at the start menu is cool. Tailgate lot is meh, I fell like they included this just to reinforce where alcohol is and is not permitted.

    Also! The weather alert also having the times for kickoff and the tailgate lot opening is hella convenient. 5-star app as far as I'm concerned.

    All in all pretty awesome and it's killer that they added a new app to replace the inactive gobison.com one.

    What do you mean by inactive. Mine is updated and has all the schedules and rosters, etc. Last news story for football was yesterday at 2:31pm.
