According to an article on gobison.com the North Dakota State University Bison football team will play one non-conference game at the Fargodome this Fall.  The Bison will host Central Arkansas on Saturday, October 3rd at 2:30 pm central time.  North Dakota State will treat this game as a wrap up to their Fall practice schedule.

This will be the first time the two schools have met and they will play 2 more times (2023 & 2025) after the October 3rd match up.   Central Arkansas will be no slouch.  The Bears play in the Southland Conference and have won 35 games and made three NCAA FCS playoff appearances in the past four seasons according to Bison head coach Matt Entz in the article.

So the big question...Will fans be allowed in this game?  The answer is YES, but it will be a tough ticket to get.  A very limited number of tickets will given out due to capacity restrictions expected.  There will be no tailgating allowed and fans will be required to wear a mask.  North Dakota State will work with the Fargodome, City of Fargo and Fargo Cass Public Health to establishing procedures to provide a safe environment for the game.    If you are a season ticket holder for NDSU football games, you have until 4 p.m. Friday, Sept. 4, to indicate interest in attending the game through a survey form at GoBison.com/Request. Season ticket holders will be allowed to request up to the number of tickets on their account.

The Bison originally started Fall camp on August 7th.  They will now resume camp on September 1st and practice for a month prior to the Central Arkansas game on October 3rd.
