Football Championship Subdivision powerhouse North Dakota State has interest in playing the Huskers, the school’s athletic director Matt Larsen confirmed to InForum.com in Fargo, North Dakota.
An NDSU spokesperson confirmed to the Journal Star on Wednesday afternoon that the school has reached out to Nebraska about playing. He said NDSU wants to play up to three games this fall, including perhaps one FBS opponent.
The Bison were originally supposed to play at Oregon on Sept. 5, but the Pac-12 joined the Big Ten in first nixing nonconference play before ultimately pulling the plug on football this fall altogether.
Nebraska officials have not commented publicly since the Big Ten’s official announcement beyond a statement from the leadership group which included University of Nebraska-Lincoln Chancellor Ronnie Green, University of Nebraska System President Ted Carter, Nebraska Athletic Director Bill Moos and Nebraska Head Football Coach Scott Frost
The Bison, of course, have won eight of the past nine FCS national championships and are led by a pair of potential 2021 first-round NFL Draft picks in quarterback Trey Lance and tackle Dillon Radunz.
