    Re: North Dakota State vs Towson - National Championship

    Looking forward to this game having played both teams in the past couple years. It could be a high scoring affair. Hopefully the Tigers QB is healthy enough to start and make an impact. If not, Bison will really focus on 8-9 in the box and force Towson to go to the air. My number one concern is whether Towson's D can withstand four quarters of pounding from the Bison line and tough backs. Jensen also a very good QB. While I will be rooting for the Tigers, gotta give the Bison the nod on the prediction front by about 10 pts.

    How does your fan base travel? I am not trying to be a d*ck just trying to learn more about your program.

    To be honest not all that great. Towson's still a commuter school, even though the number of students living on campus is growing. My guess is the crowd in Frisco may be 80/20 Bison fans. A lot of the student population omes from the Baltimore area, but also the Long Island/New York area as well, at least it was whenI was going there (though that was 20 years ago)

    NDSU is just going to move the Dome crowd south...and it will be a big advantage.

    Towson released some tickets last night and NDSU fans were there to purchase them.

    I think 20% is optimistic.

    Fixed it for you.

    Like I said to the UNH fans last week, the fact that I think my team will win easily is not disrespect towards Towson, it's my opinion having watched this NDSU team steamroll everyone they've played since UNI. Do I think NDSU will win easily? Yes. Would I be surprised to see them win by 35+? I would be but I don't discount that's a possibility with the way NDSU is playing right now just like it's a possibility that Towson could pull the upset. I think Towson has had a fantastic year and regardless of the outcome in Frisco it should be celebrated by your fans because it's pretty spectacular, for your seniors especially, to have come from 1-10 in 2010 to the national title game in 2013. I just think your team is running into a juggernaut in the national title game.

    I think it will look a lot like the crowd in the dome for the last 3 games with just a little spot of fans from the opposing team

    Probably more like 10%

    Just my opinion.
    You have a point. Bell is listed at 6'2" 195 at McKinnon is listed at 5'9" 205 so McKinnon is definitely more built and a smaller target in stature (and I do question whether Brian Bell at 195 is accurate) but I think McKinnon is the tougher of the two regardless.

    I really don't see Towson scoring more than 10-13 points....maybe 17 unless NDSU has multiple turnovers. They remind me a lot of MVFC teams with a good running game and ability to pass. I'm thinking 31-10 or 38-17 NDSU seems about right at least on paper. The concern I have is each team has long scoring drives and both teams only have 7 or 8 possessions for the game.

    Not a chance Towson is 20% of the crowd. Lucky if it is 5%
