Grand Forks, ND (WDAY TV) – After five long years, UND can finally begin its quest for a playoff berth tonight. A new season of UND football brings with it plenty of changes, most notably a change at quarterback as North Carolina transfer Braden Hanson now is the man under center.

Hanson has waited four years to finally get a chance to start and now with a team that's beginning a new chapter, he says he's ready.

Braden Hanson – UND Senior Quarterback: “I'm not really nervous, I'm more anxious than anything. I'm just ready to get it going. My parents are coming up. I've played in some games, but this will be my first start, so I'm really looking forward to it. I'm very excited. I think I've progressed over fall camp. I think I've progressed over the summer. I definitely felt better coming into fall camp than I did last spring running the offense, getting to know the personnel, and the guys I’ll be playing with. I think I've come a long way from the beginning of fall camp until now. I'm looking forward to making more strides as the season goes on.”

It's a 7pm kickoff. You can hear the game on 970 WDAY.
