    The opening match of the season versus Tarleton State University is an interesting one, that's for sure.

    And what's going on with Incarnate Word? They seem to be all over the place in terms of their conference. It's like they can't make up their mind.

    The opening match with TSU will definitely be interesting. Brand new program, former Bison head coach, TSU's first official game.

    Maybe Pete will share some secrets on how to make the Summit League tournament?
    Will the Bison have enough cohesion to beat a team playing their first official game in program history?

    At least they follow that game up with Southern, one of the 10 worst DI teams last year with an RPI of 334/342. Granted, NDSU was 302/342 but still should be able to beat a SWAC team.

    Hopefully they can build some confidence and carry that into conference play.

    RPIs of non- conference opponents (out of 342 teams):
    Viterbo- NAIA, but fairly decent
    Tarleton State University- Never played an official NCAA game
    Southern- 334
    Utah Tech (formerly Dixie State)-250
    Chicago State- 337
    Wyoming- 244
    Northern Colorado- 213
    Green Bay- 202
    Drake- 176 (actually televised on WDAY Xtra)
    Idaho- 256
    Montana- 136

    Top 2 teams in the Summit League last year were 84 and 116. 5th team (Omaha) in the Summit was 174. Just to show where the Bison need to elevate their play to be a contender in the conference.

    They looked pretty good out there tonight. Granted, Viterbo definitely had some weaknesses on the field.

    7 goals is only 2 off from their scoring output for the entire 2021 season of 16 games.

    They defeated Viterbo 3-0 back in 2019 and finished over .500 on the season. Hopefully they can keep finding the back of the net in preseason and take that momentum into conference play.

    This is good information to have. Thank you!

    Tarleton defeated A&M Corpus Christi, 1-0 in an exhibition game. There were the #300 RPI team last season, NDSU was #302. Makes this upcoming game even more interesting.
