unindsuThe Northern Iowa-North Dakota State series always produces emotional, hard hitting games and Saturday should be no different as the 10th ranked Panthers visit the second rated Bison in a Missouri Valley Football Conference contest.

UNI coach Mark Farley says turnovers will play a major factor in the outcome.

“You know this is going to be a pretty intense football game. This is going to be a very hard hitting football game as it always is and it is going to be a very intense environment”, said Farley. “I am more concerned about how to defend them and how to attack them.”

The Panthers beat then top ranked North Dakota State 23-3 in Cedar Falls last season but this game will be in the Fargodome where the Bison have won 25 straight games.
