FARGO, N.D. (AP) -- North Dakota State has added to its list of Football Bowl Subdivision opponents in upcoming seasons. Athletic Director Gene Taylor says the Bison will travel to Iowa to open the 2016 season.
Taylor confirmed the game to The Forum newspaper and WDAY-TV just days before the Bison travel to take on Minnesota. NDSU is getting $350,000 for the Gophers game. The school is guaranteed $500,000 for the Hawkeyes game.
NDSU is a Football Championship Subdivision school. Future FBS opponents include Colorado State next season, Kansas State in 2013 and Iowa State in 2014. All are road games for the Bison.
