NDSU will host Nicholls State in an FCS second-round playoff game Saturday at the Fargodome. Nicholls State beat North Dakota 24-6 in a first-round game this past Saturday.

Saturday’s game starts at 2:30 p.m. with the pregame show at 2 p.m. on KBMW.

 

MINNESOTA VIKINGS

The Minnesota Vikings let a 17-10 halftime lead get away in the second half as Seattle scored 27 points over the final 30 minutes for a 37-30 Monday night in Seattle.

The Vikings are now 8-4 and one game behind Green Bay for the NFC North lead with four to play.

Minnesota also lost running back Dalvin Cook in the third quarter to shoulder injury. Kirk Cousins threw for 276 yards and two touchdowns.

Minnesota hosts Detroit at noon on Sunday

 

MINNESOTA TWINS

The Minnesota Twins decided not to tender first baseman C.J. Cron and relief pitcher Trevor Hildenberger, meaning both players are now free agents.

The Twins made the moves on Monday.

Minnesota did sign Ehire Adrianza to a one-year guaranteed contract and tendered contracts to the rest of its arbitration-eligible players.

Cron was limited much of the 2019 season with a lingering thumb injury and eventually required surgery. Cron finished the season with a .253 batting average.

Adrianza’s contract is for $1.6 million, a $300,000 raise from last season.

The 30-year-old utilityman played in 83 games for the Twins in 2019 and hit .272 with 22 runs batted in in 236 plate appearances.

The Twins tendered contracts to pitchers Jose Berrios, Tyler Duffey, Trevor May, Taylor Rogers and Matt Wisler; third baseman Miguel Sano, and outfielders Byron Buxton and Eddie Rosario ahead of Monday night’s deadline.
