The North Dakota State Bison will host Montana State in an FCS semifinal game Saturday at the Fargodome. The game starts at 1 p.m. with the pregame show at 12:30 p.m. on KBMW.

The Bison come in a perfect 14-0 this season and having won 35 straight games over the last three years. Montana State is coming in hot as well with a 6-game winning streak.

 

MINNESOTA VIKINGS

Dalvin Cook didn’t practice Thursday for the Minnesota Vikings, but hasn’t given up on playing Monday night against Green Bay.

Cook reinjured his shoulder Sunday in a win over the L.A. Chargers.

Also not practicing Thursday was backup running back Alexander Mattison. If Cooks and Mattison can’t play Monday, third-stringer Mike Boone would get his first career start.

The Vikings can clinch a playoff spot with either a win or tie against Green Bay or a loss or tie by the L.A. Rams at San Francisco. Minnesota would need to win its final two games and have Green Bay lose both its games to win the NFC North.
