When College GameDay turned its trailers north from College Station to head to North Dakota State, it wasn't doing so in order to cover this upcoming weekend's most intriguing game.
The Bison will crush Delaware State on Saturday. The hapless Hornets are 0-2, coming off a 49-7 defeat at the hands of Towson. NDSU is 2-0, coming off a 56-10 win over Ferris State. North Dakota State is favored by 40. This will be a beatdown, much like the majority of the time the Bison square off against FCS competition.
This isn't about the matchup: it's a celebration of an incredible football story that often goes unnoticed because of the letter "C."
Calling NDSU a good FCS team is disrespectful. It implies they're in a pack in college football's second tier, rather than that tier's undisputed leaders. Calling their Week 1 win over FBS Kansas State an upset is disingenuous. It implies anybody should've been favoring the depleted Wildcats by all that much to begin with.
So let's take a moment to enjoy all things Bison.
