Grand Forks, ND (WDAY TV)-- If there's one team that's thrilled about the expansion of the FCS playoffs, it has to be UND. Chris Mussman's squad will play 7 home games this fall against the heavyweights of the Big Sky Conference, but it's a huge opportunity.

UND went 5-6 last year; they were in nearly every game last season;

three losses by 8 points or less and they believe a big play here or there this season and they're a playoff team.

Luke Schleusner- UND Offensive Coordinator: "That's the goal; everyone has a fresh slate, and obviously our goal is to be the big sky champions and make the playoffs."

Joe Kleason- UND Sr. Offensive Lineman: "You look at NDSU they made the playoffs and anything can happen, takes a group of guys that really want to do it commit our time and can't take any days off and we should be good."

The UND defense will be tested right from the get-go; hosting SDSU, Montana and Montana State in September.
