Homecoming week kicked off Monday with a Campus Breakfast and events have continued throughout the week getting students excited for today's game.

Chelsea Hay/UND Student: "I went to greek god and goddess which is a UND Sorority and Fraternity event and the nI went to Pep Fest."

An Ice Cream social, T-shirt day, Pep fest, the Sioux Award Banquet and a Fan Luncheon were just a few of the events that took place throughout the week…the favorite being the pep fest.

Hay:"I loved seeing Pep Fest, I think that was super fun.

Volek: "The Pep Fest, and see who was crowned the homecoming royalty cause I think that's really cool because I was homecoming Royalty in my hometown in high school."

However, when it came to the game itself, no event was more popular.

Hay: Everything is leading up to the football game and kinda tailgating and just kind of the big hurrah.

Tara and George Haj/UND alumni: "Football game was my favorite---football of course.

Shanda Spilde/UND alumni: "The sporting events, everyone just gets so into it and all the alumni come back so it's really fun to see everybody excited."
