    A few years ago James Madison played a neutral site game against Virginia Tech at Fed Ex Field in Landover, Maryland (home of the Washington Redskins).

    Evidently that game occurred because a very wealthy JMU booster helped to guarantee a healthy payout to both JMU and VA Tech.

    With NDSU still looking for a FBS game in 2021 and 2023, a neutral site "home and home" with JMU would be fun - one in Minneapolis and one at Landover.

    As a note, per fbschedules.com, JMU does not have a FBS game scheduled in 2021 and 2023.

    I agree...except for the SDSU part. SDSU has a hard enough time filling their own stadium. Seriously...they wouldn't travel well. Not trying to be a dick...but SDSU just doesn't travel. Just think if EWU and SDSU had met in Frisco. There might have only be 6-7k in the stands.

    Agreed, I think that could be a big success if you could get those venues on board with it. That's why I think this "gimmick" at Target Field could be an opportunity for NDSU to show they can make their own FBS level payouts in the future if FBS schools are too chicken shit to play them.

    I agree. The improved football results have not translated to much interest from their alumni and other potential fans in the Sioux Falls area. Southast South Dakota seems more interested in basketball.

    But I'm sure Larsen Doors would buy up all the tickets anyway. That's better than selling the tickets to Bison fans.
    Hey UND: 34-9

    Or NDSU vs. Clemson! (Not that they would ever give up a home game to an FCS team, even if we gave them 75% of the ticket revenue.)
    Wherever you go, there you are.

    You're not wrong. They have a good fan base...in South Dakota. None of them travel though. Even when we played them in Sioux Falls it seems like more than 1/2 of them couldn't bare the 45 min drive.
