Why does NDSU football continue to hit the pulse of football fans?

“The long-standing tradition and success of the football program is a huge part of the appeal,” Senior Associate Athletic Director Troy Goergen said. “Our fans are not just casual fans. They are invested and dedicated to being a part of game day and the success of the team.”

What has the athletic department done in the last year to change or enhance the product?

“We surveyed our fans and evaluated every aspect of the fan experience,” Goergen said. “We made updates that were important to fans and introduced new elements as well. For example, we added more opportunities for fans to win prizes during in-game promotions, improved the video board content and added food trucks to tailgating.”

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
