It's not all practice, film and hard work for the Bison Football team this week. Tonight a break in the action, and some friendly competition with the Bearkats.

The main event is still a couple days away, but tonight at Main Event Entertainment, the fun and competition with the Bison football team has already started.

Brock Jensen - NDSU Starting QB: “It's been awesome so far, we've been treated really awesome down here, the people are really great.”

Walking in, the Bison team was greeted by fans, family and the city of Frisco. Treated to bandannas and cowboy hats in true Texas Fashion

Brock Jensen: “It's the best being able to spend time with each other and we've been like that the whole year and we really enjoy each other's company. I think that's what makes a good team.”

And the food - 1,000 pounds of meat and 1,000 pieces of cornbread between the two teams. But tonight was all about the Bar-B-Que Bowl. Six Bison verse Six Bearcats for the second most important trophy up for grabs this week. Starting Linebacker Preston Evans was one of the lucky 6 picked.

Preston Evans - NDSU LB: “When I got selected, I think I bowled the best game of my life. We feel strong right now, we've got some pretty good bowlers.”

Win or lose, the Bison team told me, the only victory that matters this week is the one they hope to earn on Saturday.

Just into the newsroom, Bison fall to the Bearkats in the bowling match. The final score was 116 to 110.
