WEST FARGO - The West Fargo School District has a major vote today to address the rapid population growth in that city and it directly affects athletics. The 106.9 million dollar bond referendum package includes not only a new high school and new middle school - along with millions in security upgrades at several schools, along with field turf for West Fargo, Sheyenne and the new high school. Sheyenne's football field is just four years old, but is used for everything from ninth grade to varsity games. West Fargo's may be used by even more teams.

FARGO - The term "Rams" is used to describe the North Dakota State offensive line and it fits senior Luke Bacon. He's like a battering ram, 6-foot-5, 300 pounds. But Bacon has been dealing with a major hit as soon as he arrived in Fargo. Bacon's younger sister, Kaitlyn, was killed in a motorcycle accident in Minot in 2014. Bacon dealt with his grief the best way he knew how: by playing football. He had to bide his time and learn the game, there was a major transition moving up from 9-man to Division I.
PHILADELPHIA - Carson Wentz is returning to the field. The Philadelphia Eagles announced Monday morning that the former North Dakota State standout has been medically cleared for contact and will start for the Eagles next Sunday when they host the Indianapolis Colts. Wentz has been rehabbing for the last nine months since tearing his ACL and LCL in his left knee December 10th against the Los Angeles Rams. Wentz's original goal was to be ready for the season opener September 6th against Atlanta, but had not been cleared for contact.
FARGO - There are only a couple of FCS schools that can brag about having first round NFL Draft Picks at quarterback. UC Davis with Ken O'Brien, Alcorn State with Steve McNair, Morehead State with Phil Simms and of course NDSU with Carson Wentz. The Bison opponent this week is also a part of this exclusive club, Delaware and Joe Flacco. Flacco was a standout for the Blue Hens in 2007, leading them to the national championship game. During that playoff run, Delaware beat Northern Iowa on the road, a team that Chris Klieman was an assistant with.
FARGO - When North Alabama takes the field at the Fargodome Saturday afternoon, they hope this is a preview of the not-so-distant future for their football program.

UNA will play as an FCS independent this fall, before officially joining the Big South Conference next July. They will become eligible for the postseason in 2022.
