Here is an article from the Fargo Forum about NDSU adding the University of Arizona to the 2022 schedule.
Here is an excerpt from the article.
The Sept. 17, 2022, game at Arizona Stadium in Tucson is one of three with Pac-12 teams in a five-year period. The Bison are playing at the University of Oregon in 2020 and at Colorado in 2024.
NDSU will get a $425,000 guarantee from Arizona with the Wildcats on the hook for a $1 million buyout. It's also further evidence any games with FBS schools in the Midwest region like the Big Ten Conference are long gone.
FARGO, N.D. – North Dakota State University and the University of Arizona have signed a one-game contract to play in the 2022 football season.
The Bison and Wildcats will play Saturday, Sept. 17, at Arizona Stadium in Tucson. It will be NDSU's first game with Arizona and the second of three against Pac-12 opponents.
NDSU has road games scheduled with the Oregon Ducks on Sept. 5, 2020, and the Colorado Buffaloes on Aug. 31, 2024.
Arizona has been to bowl games seven of the last nine years. The Wildcats have not played a team from the Missouri Valley Football Conference.
NDSU has a 9-3 record against teams from the Football Bowl Subdivision. The Bison have won their last six straight FBS games including last year's 23-21 victory over the 11th-ranked Iowa Hawkeyes.
