IOWA CITY, Iowa — North Dakota State’s prowess against FBS competition isn’t lost upon Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz.
Ferentz knows the five-time FCS champion Bison have won their last five games against FBS opponents. Unprompted, Ferentz also rattled off that North Dakota State has won eight of its last 11 against FBS opponents and won’t be intimidated by the Hawkeyes’ 70,000-seat Kinnick Stadium.
“They’re used to going on the road, and they’re used to going on the road and having success,” Ferentz said on the Big Ten teleconference.
No. 13 Iowa (2-0) plays host to the FCS’ top-ranked Bison (2-0) at noon ET Saturday (TV: ESPN2).
