With former Bison quarterback and rising Philadelphia Eagles star Carson Wentz on a bye, presumably available to be on hand in Fargo, an optimistic NDSU fan might have thought ESPN could return to Fargo Saturday, Oct. 1, when the Bison face off against Illinois State. After all, the five-time reigning FCS champs just knocked off Iowa, the highest-ranked FBS team they've ever beaten.

"But I don't know what he has coming this week."
