Selection Sunday is 7 weeks away but for the Bison Men, they're hoping next Monday a selection show treats them well. That's when the ESPN Bracketbuster pairings are announced with 13 games being televised on ESPN. The matchups are based on the latest RPI rankings.

Here’s a look at some potential opponents: NDSU has an RPI of 132 tonight; Indiana State is at 130, an NCAA tourney team last year from the Missouri Valley; Youngstown State is at 146. Both are obvious football rivals as well. The MAC, Big South and Colonial conferences represented as well. NDSU heads to IPFW on Thursday night.
