FRISCO, Texas — North Dakota State and James Madison met the media for the final time Friday, Jan. 10, in advance of the NCAA Division I FCS title game.

The Bison (15-0) and Dukes (14-1) are set to meet at 11 a.m. Saturday at Toyota Stadium with the game being televised on WDAY-TV (ABC).

"We're going to have to play at our best to have an opportunity to compete with them and we look forward to it," Bison head coach Matt Entz said. "Our 14 seniors have been a big part of the reason why we're here this year. I'd be remiss if I didn't mention them."

Entz and James Madison head coach Curt Cignetti both had Friday afternoon press conferences along with select players on the eve of FCS championship Saturday.

“It's been talked about, they got off track maybe just a little bit last year with their focus,” said Cignetti, who is in his first year as Dukes head coach. “They realize that. I think I was lucky and fortunate really to be able to coach this team. But we had a plan and we knew what we wanted and improved the team without question.”
