Grand Forks, ND (WDAY TV) -- It's a big week for the Sioux softball team, Eric Oakley's squad is in the midst of a 4-game win streak, and hosts South Dakota State and USD, Monday and Tuesday respectively.

And as you would expect, UND is fired up at a chance to take down it's neighbors from the South.

Oakley says, " I think there's going to be good matchups. I'm glad we're at home. The team seems to play relaxed at home. I think it's going to be good games."

Maggie O'Neal, UND Sr. Outfielder, says, "It's going to add a lot, especially with South Dakota. They are a huge rival. In the past,

we've beat them in conference two years ago. It'll be good to see them again outside of conference play. But, we'll still have that fire and competitiveness and want to beat them."

South Dakota is no longer a conference opponent for UND, the Coyotes are in their first season in the Summit League
