    Outside of your rival(s), whats your most anticipated game this year?

    Outside of Alabama A&M and Tuskegee our most anticipated game is October 7th at home vs. Alcorn State. We haven't beaten Alcorn State since 2013 and we've developed a nice little rivalry with them since then. Alcorn represented the Eastern division of the SWAC in the Conference title game 4 years in a row. We've led Alcorn going into the 4th quarter the last two seasons before two 4th quarter collapses in both games. Lately the series as turn into a highly attended game between us with the last 3 meetings getting over the 20,000 mark.

    NDSU's 3 OOC games:


    Miss Valley State
    Eastern Washington
    Robert Morris

    2 will be complete blowouts but out of the 3, EWU is probably the game most anticipated.

    Villanova!

    Lehigh has a chance to make an early statement when the Wildcats come to visit. The Mountain Hawks need to get back over the CAA hump. Their last win over a Top 25 CAA team was UNH in 2013.

    We don't really have a true "rival" (if any, I guess it'd be Illinois State...this year will be our 100th meeting). Probably my most anticipated game this year is against South Dakota, for a couple of reasons. It's Homecoming, which is always fun, but also, it will be the first time that Coach Nielson will return to Hanson Field for a game since he bolted for South Dakota immediately following the end of the 2015 season. The band will be right behind the middle of the visiting team, so it could get interesting.

    Abilene Christian closes with back-to-back games against Sam Houston and UCA. I expect the Wildcats will gain momentum as the season goes along and our team becomes more comfortable with our new coaches and schemes. The Sam and UCA games will be a good barometer of how far we have come and how far we need to go to be competitive in the conference and beyond.

    Other than this, there is a lot we are looking forward to this fall. New Mexico-First game under our new HC. Everyone is eager to see the new look. Colorado State--Fort Collins. New Stadium. The Mountains. Houston Baptist. First home game in our new stadium. First time we have played on campus in 50 years.

    @ JMU. Big reach I know, but I think JMU will lose one CAA game this year, it might as well be against UNH.
