North Dakota State opens its 125th season of football Saturday in Minneapolis with a new head coach and quarterback.
Those are the major storylines that surround this Bison team in 2019 but there are several others that bear watching this fall. The new members of the offensive line at center and guard, how will they click? Who is going to step up to catch the ball at wide receiver? The middle of the defensive line has major question marks as does the linebacker position.
The rest of the Missouri Valley has question marks as well. South Dakota State has a new quarterback as well. Can Illinois State be consistent and return to the top of the league? Northern Iowa and Youngstown State is looking for new quarterbacks and can Indiana State be a real contender?
