Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- It's the hottest ticket in town. Tens of thousands of NDSU fans are gearing up for this weekends game against Youngstown State.

And for the first time, the university is taking your traditional fan guide - and putting it all on your smartphone. If you're one of the thousands of fans that was lucky enough to get a ticket for Saturday's homecoming game, the staff here at North Dakota State University has a little something extra for you this weekend, because for Bison Gameday, there's an app for that.

Justin Swanson/Director of Marketing and Promotions: "The app has a lot of really neat features that are going to enhance a fans experience on gameday."

Without a doubt, the coolest feature, the fan strobe light. It flashes green and yellow and is meant to be used when the Fargodome goes dark.

Swanson: "Something to our knowledge, no professional or college team has ever done before."

But that's not all. It has a tailgating guide for those that like to get started a little early.

And includes a game day weather section. Something that might come in handy with white stuff already hitting the ground.

And in case you haven't done your Youngstown State research yet, there's an opponents information section.

Justin Swanson: "We have a game day deals tab, you can find out the game day deal or special for the week. This week it happens to be a $25 yellow hooded NDSU sweatshirt."

Something that might come in handy for this Saturday's gold out.

So get ready Bison fans...it's game day for the digital age.

The application is free and available on both the Android and Apple markets.
