    Isn't that what FBS bowl games are?

    Why are so sensitive?

    We have an 11 game schedule this upcoming season. Will the addition make it 12 games this year? Or are they not members until a future year?
    They become members for the 2023 season.
    North Dakota State, a football team the big boys of college football should avoid like the plague, helped christen a $90 million renovation to Snyder Family Stadium including a statue of famed Kansas State coach Bill Snyder himself by taking a sledgehammer to the place.

    It makes no sense to burn goodwill with the old conference: You might need non-conference games in the future.

    Goodness, I hope youre right.... but theres no way. No one would be more excited than me, but no one would be more shocked as well, lol.
    1. The FCS was the Best option for NDSU for a very long time.
    2. As a general rule- the FCS sucks at football and has proven that is not committed to football at all.
    3. It's time to go FBS

    No there won't be a 12th game. 12 game schedules happen on years that have an extra Saturday between Labor Day and Thanksgiving. Essentially if Labor Day is on the 1st or 2nd there's an opportunity for a 12 game schedule.

    I think ur actually over selling the chances by only saying 'no way'. As long as larson is here, we have a greater chance of moving down than moving up.
