    It’s the day we’ve all been waiting for. Time to make history as the greatest FCS team of all time. No way this senior class lets us down in Klieman’s last game. Lets dominate from the tailgate lot to the stands to the field and then all meet on the field around 2 pm to again watch the boys in green and gold hoist another trophy! Lets go win another national championship!!

    Bison: 42
    Baby Birds: 20

    Now this is the law of the prairie
    As old and as true as the sky
    And the Bison that keep it will prosper
    And the Bison that break it will die
    As the creeper that girdles the tree trunk
    This law is the final word:
    For the strength of the Herd is the Bison
    And the strength of the Bison is the Herd.

    His record pure gold,
    His courage, pure radium.

    Today is the day that can be of major importance in NDSU history, especially that of its football program. Not to long ago, the institution decided to move up from DII to DI after years of decent mediocrity for a very successful football program. Who would have thought that in such a short time, the program now stands a chance to reach top of the mountain for the seventh time and surpass a great program like Georgia Southern? Well, I'm expecting to see that dream become a reality.

    Not to be too disrespectful to EWU, but there is going to have to be a lot of things go their way in order for them to upset this Bison team. However, that Bison team is too focused and experienced to have mistakes allow for this game to slip away from their control. I expect the Eagles to be competitive and get their points, but not enough to keep up with the Bison. I predict NDSU finishes the season 15-0 and wins their fifteenth title overall with a 45-24 victory.
    Hail the BISON!!!
