North Dakota State practicing, pursuing nonconference games

(Stats Perform) - North Dakota State, the three-time defending FCS champion, continues to practice despite the uncertainty of playing games this fall.

The Bison opened preseason camp on Friday, held a second practice on Sunday and has the next one scheduled for Monday.

The FCS' top program left open the possibility of playing up to three nonconference games this fall after Missouri Valley Football Conference presidents allowed that opportunity to members schools when the league season was suspended this past Friday due to the COVID-19 pandemic. All three of the Bison's original out-of-conference games were canceled by the opponents - Oregon, Drake and North Carolina A&T.
