NDSU campus clearing out for big game

There's a certain buzz in Bison country. NDSU's campus is starting to clear out for the game between the Gophers and the Bison Saturday. Today people on campus are doing all they can to make sure TCF stadium is filled with green and yellow.

The Green and yellow at the Bison Bookstore is especially popular on days like these. After back to back wins, and now the team marching in to the Twin Cities for the first time since 2008, merchandise sales are up 10% at the bookstore.

Mary Sivertson – Bookstore Merchandise Buyer: "We've had a lot of orders online going to Minneapolis today and the last couple of days overnight."

The 144 special game day T-shirts ordered a month ago are sold out.

Marilyn Beaton – Bookstore Worker: "Everybody's buying clothes for the game in the cities. It should be a fun place to be tomorrow."

You can count on TFC stadium getting loud too. The band is packing up this truck and loading up 4 busses and heading to the Twin Cities. Like a fine tuned symphony, it was quite the production to make sure each Goldstar band member and each instrument made its way on to the bus.

Geoff Solomonson – NDSU Band Member: "Organized Chaos is a good way to explain us. Oh yea. Everyone's excited right now. But I don't think it will really hit us until tomorrow morning when we actually head towards the stadium."

So for Bison fans and band members alike the confidence is there for an ideal outcome. The Bison Gophers game will begin tomorrow night at 6.
