Bison defense wants to be even better

Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- To spring football now, where the Bison defense says it wants to be even better, and that's a scary thought for the rest of FCS, considering NDSU led the nation in scoring defense last fall.

Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- To spring football now, where the Bison defense says it wants to be even better, and that's a scary thought for the rest of FCS, considering NDSU led the nation in scoring defense last fall.

That side of the ball looks a little different, Chris Klieman has taken over for Scottie Hazelton as defensive coordinator.

And young guys like Grant Olson and Kyle Emanuel are stepping into new roles,

to help fill the void left by seniors Chad Willson, Preston Evans, and Coulter Boyer. While, they may be big shoes to fill, Emanuel says nobody is shying away from the challenge.

Emanual says,"Obviously, the ultimate goal would be to be better than last year. I think that has to be your goal. If it isn't your goal then you are getting worse. But, right now we're just going to focus on getting a little better every day and that will take care of itself in the end."
