For the second consecutive season the North Dakota football team will get to play a Big Sky Conference team as part of their tune-up for league play. That will take place on Saturday at the Alerus Center as No. 11/15 Montana visits for a 6:05 p.m. kickoff.
UND defeated Big Sky foe Portland state 45-37 in a non-conference game in 2012 but will face a resurgent Griz team that will be seeking revenge for a 40-34 setback handed to them by UND last October.
UND’s remaining nine games will all be against Big Sky Conference foes, but this Saturday’s matchup against league foe Montana will be counted as a non-conference contest.
