FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Tickets are scarce for this weekend's matchup between the No. 1 and No. 3 teams in the Football Championship Subdivision.
Top-ranked North Dakota State hosts third-ranked Youngstown State on Saturday afternoon at the Fargodome, which can accommodate about 18,700 fans for football. The Penguins were the only team to beat the Bison last season as NDSU won 14 games and captured the FCS crown with a 17-6 win over Sam Houston State in the title game in Frisco, Texas, this past January.
Both NDSU and Youngstown State — which won four national titles in the 1990s — come into this year's matchup with 4-0 records.
"It should be a classic matchup of these two really good programs," NDSU head coach Craig Bohl told The Forum newspaper.
The game also is the homecoming game for NDSU, and tickets are hard to come by. NDSU said the game is sold out, and The Forum reports that the popular website http://www.StubHub.com, where fans can buy and sell tickets, has none for the game. NDSU players, who each get four complimentary tickets per game, are tweeting looking for more.
NDSU said some standing room tickets might be available on Friday. Fans are directed to http://www.GoBison.com/tickets .
