(WDAY TV) -- A week ago, the UND football team made a statement that they're ready for the Big Sky conference, out-slugging new conference foe Portland State.

Tonight, they'll try and make their biggest statement of the division one era, going for the program's first FBS win against San Diego State.

UND is 0-5 against teams from college football's highest division, but several of those games have been close. UND lost by just 5 last year at Fresno State, and 2 years ago, it was a 6 point defeat at Northern Illinois.

But, the team is getting tired of just being close, they want to get over the hump.

Chris Mussman, UND Head Coach, says, "this is a chance for us to achieve that goal on Saturday, but we also know they're a very good team."

That game kicks off at 7 o'clock central time at Qualcomm Stadium, which doubles as the home of the San Diego Chargers.
