IOWA CITY, Iowa — History’s most intriguing FBS vs. FCS matchup takes place Saturday at Kinnick Stadium.
The five-time national champion North Dakota State Bison, winners of their last five games against FBS competition, face the defending Big Ten West Division Iowa Hawkeyes. While the Bison have nothing to prove, beating No. 13-ranked Iowa would provide the biggest notch in their title belts. The Hawkeyes have little to gain in the public’s eye — if they win. But Iowa’s players understand this isn’t a typical FCS game where they work on a few situations, get a sizable lead and let the backups play in the fourth quarter.
There is mutual respect among the programs, and expect a physical game.
