FARGO - Much has been made of NDSU's success on the road over the past six seasons, but they have never experienced what Western Illinois is going thru this year. The Leathernecks are playing seven road games this year, including this week's trip to Fargo. What's even more impressive? Western hasn't lost on the road, they've won four games, like two weeks ago at Northern Iowa, scoring the game winning touchdown with six seconds to go.
FARGO - Bison fans will not be able to celebrate too much this week, as another challenge lies in wait at the Fargodome this Saturday. It's not earth shattering news that the Missouri Valley is tough this year, but this season appears to be more difficult than many can remember. NDSU will host Western Illinois this week, the Leathernecks come in at 5-1, including a 40 point road win over Coastal Carolina earlier this year.
FARGO - Now the fun begins for Bison football. North Dakota State outscored its first five opponents 258-31 in racking up a 5-0 record. But the schedule toughens up this weekend as the Bison head to Youngstown State for a matchup with the ninth ranked Penguins. The heavyweights of the league await after that, including Northern Iowa, South Dakota State and South Dakota. NDSU head coach Chris Klieman said staying focused during the early part of the season was a major goal to get ready for what lies ahead.
FARGO - When NDSU players and coaches look at film of Youngstown State it's like they're staring in a mirror. The Penguins love to run the football and play good defense, two hallmarks of the Bison. How similar are they? Two weeks ago, Youngstown State held the ball for 45 minutes in its 19-7 win over SDSU, holding the high flying Jacks to just three minutes of possession time in the second half. It appears that Saturday's game will come down to who has the ball longer?
WDAY/WDAZ TV - NDSU has discovered a new way to beat its opponents in 2017 by making the tight end the primary receiving target. Senior Connor Wentz hauled in three catches for 36 yards and two touchdowns in the 52-0 win over Indiana State. Hawley native Ben Ellefson also had one catch for a touchdown in the win. The Bison tight ends have accounted for a combined five touchdowns this season, which is the same amount as the wide receivers.
FARGO - West Fargo showed why its one of the favorites to win the Class 3A state championship this year with a dominant 39-7 win over Fargo South. The Packers were led on the ground by Alex Sell, who racked up three touchdowns and had an interception to boot. South's only touchdown came on a 69 yard touchdown pass from Tanner Dubois to Jamon Howard, that tied the game at 7. West Fargo responded with 32 consecutive points to win its 20th consecutive conference game. The Packers are now 7-0, South drops to 5-2.
FARGO - James Hendricks came to Fargo with an impressive high school resume. Hendricks was an all-state quarterback at Bemidji in high school. His dreams of playing quarterback for the Bison though took a detour, but its a path that's led him onto the field. The former quarterback is now on the field for NDSU as a safety. So far the move has paid off for Hendricks. Through the first four games of the season, Hendricks leads the Bison with three interceptions.
NAPA, CA - Tom Hoge's great play isn't cooling off anytime soon. The Fargo South graduate started off the new PGA Tour season in style, carding a seven under par round of 65 to tie for the lead at the Safeway Open. Hoge made six birdies on the back nine alone, shooting 30 there. Hoge is three days removed from earning his PGA Tour card for 2018, shooting a 65 in the final round on Monday. His best finish on the PGA Tour in four seasons is a tie for fourth, that happened in Reno in August.

Former D-G-F standout Blake Kragnes will start in place of the injured senior Michael Herzog. Herzog left Saturday's game with a foot injury and he'll be out a couple more games according to head coach Terry Horan. Kragnes ran for 53 yards but didn't complete any passes in the win over Gustavus.
