Jacks Battle Bison

South Dakota State and North Dakota State kick off the Missouri Valley Football Conference portions of their schedule Saturday afternoon in a battle of top-10 nationally ranked opponents.
Kickoff for the annual Battle for the Dakota Marker is set for 2:05 p.m. at Coughlin-Alumni Stadium on the SDSU campus. Reserved seating is sold out, but standing-room tickets remain available. Stadium gates open at 12:30 p.m.
Two-time defending national champion North Dakota State remains at the top of the Football Championship Subdivision polls, entering today with a 3-0 record. Following a thrilling 24-21 victory over Kansas State to open the season, the Bison trampled the competition to the tune of a combined 107-10 over their last two games.
The Jackrabbits, meanwhile, remained sixth in both the Sports Network media and FCS Coaches poll despite dropping their first game of the season Sept. 21 at Nebraska. SDSU is 3-1 overall.
