“North Dakota State is the reigning champion.”
Two years in a row I might add. The Bison could beat anyone in the Big 10. They have a very impressive record since moving up to the FCS. They were not even eligible for the playoffs for a few seasons. I think the Big 10 coaches are scared. Look what Appalachia State did to mighty Michigan in Rich Rods first season.
I remember No. Dakota St went to Minnesota and beat the Gophers a few years ago. What was even more interesting was that NDSU had more fans in the Metrodome than Minny did.
The B1G has had some FCS failures ....of course Appalachian State beating 5th ranked Michigan.....it was my nieces first FB game attended as an App student, too
Actually, Appalachian State beat Michigan in Lloyd Carr’s last season. Rich Rod came the season after that.
