Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- Kickoff is two days and counting for UND to begin

a new season and for Chris Mussman he's putting his hopes for a big season on the shoulders of a redshirt freshman quarterback.

Mussman has announced that Ryan Bartels will be the guy to start against Valparaiso on Thursday.

Bartels beat out Detroit Lakes product Joe Mollberg to earn the starting gig, but likely both will get playing time in the season opener on Thursday.

they'll be special, have to develop both of these guys."
