The North Dakota State Football team is coming off of a pretty good season in 2023.

Expectations for the Bison are always a National Championship.  Despite that, NDSU saw a season where the thundering heard lost regular season games to their arch-rivals North Dakota, South Dakota, and South Dakota State all in the same season.  Something that hadn't happened in a very long.

Even with those regular season losses, the Bison made a deep FCS playoff run before losing to Montana in double overtime 31-29.  Many, including myself, thought the Bison were robbed on a call in the endzone.

Despite the loss, it was a nice post-season run for North Dakota State, after many had left the most successful team in FCS over the last couple of decades for dead.

After a successful 2023 season, their head coach Matt  Entz decided to leave the program.

Entz made the move up to FBS and is now the Assistant Head Coach for the University of Southern California.  You can read all about that here.

NDSU then named Tim Polasek, their next Head Football Coach and now you have a chance to meet him right here in Mandan, North Dakota.

You can meet Polasek, and his staff coming up on Thursday, February 29th at The Paddle Trap in Mandan.  The event will feature your chance to get to know the new faces of the NDSU Coaching Staff with light food provided, followed by a program where fans can learn more about the future of the team.

Fans are encouraged to stick around after the program and watch the NDSU Men's and Women's Basketball teams play South Dakota.

Fans interested in attending this free event are encouraged to RSVP by completing the form found HERE.
