Bison prepare for unpredictable Illinois State

1 / 2
2 / 2

FARGO -- The scenario for NDSU's football team is pretty simple on Saturday; win and likely sew up home field advantage through the FCS Playoffs.

It's much more stark for Illinois State, who the Bison will face this weekend.

It's win and in, lose and go home.

The Redbirds have had a bizarre year, games where they've looked unbeatable against South Dakota, then others where they've been blown out like Northern Arizona and Southern Illinois.

Whatever team shows up Saturday shouldn't be taken lightly.
