The only reason this game is being played there is because they can draw a huge crowd; 37,000 for their game at Target Field and 19,500 for their game at Allianz Field. Throw in the fact this will be the last game they will EVER play against other in a rivalry game 119 years old. There is a reason this game needs a huge venue. Yes, NDSU fans travel and have lots of fans in MSP. But I am just wondering what team would come there to okay the Bison. Would 40,000 come watch another beatdown of a Pioneer team? Doubt it. Hope something can work out in the future at going to a Bison game in an NFL stadium would be awesome!!
    False! SDSU played and lost to D3 UW Lacrosse and UND lost to NAIA USF.

    so SJU and STU can continue playing, especially if STU is in the Pioneer as Non Scholly.

    Cincinnati

    Why would any of them show up other than St. Thomas?

    I cant think of a reason for any of them other than JMU.

    The only reason Yale or Harvard would come is if they feel there's a large enough donor base there for them, Harvard has played in San Diego and DC for this purpose.

    Army. Navy. Air Force.

    Do we have any one on defense appropriations?

    I would love a big neutral site game against Montana. Too bad there isn't a big city roughly between us with a big ass stadium, I think NDSU and Montana together could sell 50k or more if it's driving distance for both.

Neither school will want to give up a home game for this as it's hard enough to fill home schedules with quality games the way it is.
    If the money is there I think they would. But yeah it would make for a pretty crappy home schedule for NDSU, could affect season ticket sales I guess.

    Air Force and Navy are both in conferences and have OOC games against each other and Notre Dame...Army is still and Independent...they might take a run at it...the coach is the old Georgia Southern Coach...he might want another shot at the Bison.

    NDSU vs Montana in Denver. Large stadium, neutral site.

    I'd love that. Tons of cheap flights to Denver from all over. I wonder if we could put 50k in Mile High?

    NDSU vs UNI would be pretty great there. I'm guessing UNI fans would travel better than SDSU fans.
