Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- Bison quarterback Brock Jensen said yesterday, that he wouldn't mind making a tradition of coming to Frisco every January for a national championship.

Frisco businesses probably wouldn't mind either. WDAY 6 Sports Director Dom Izzo caught up with the man who's in charge of the festivities this weekend.

This is year three that this city and this stadium has hosted the championship game and it was clear to Tom Burnett, the man running things here, that he needed to be prepared for another Gold Rush.

It's easy to say deja vu all over again, but that is really what it kinda is. I think people remember what a great experience that they had here in Frisco last year. And we got that opportunity again, we got a rematch, best two teams in the sub-division squaring off again and they have proven that in the playoffs. I think it's gonna be a great show on Saturday. Locally what we have really seen is much more pressure in tickets and the opportunity. We told people to buy them back in September, buy them in October and I think as we saw North Dakota State fans that bought tickets through the public outlet early on that has created another since of urgency on ticket sales.

Coming up tonight at six on WDAY 6 sports, we will hear from Bison linebacker Grant Olson, he will tell us about a surprise trip to the hospital and his playing status for Saturday.

You only have to wait one more day for our 1-hour special, Fargo To Frisco, it will air tomorrow at 9 pm on WDAY.
