North Dakota State wraps up the regular season Saturday with a visit from the University of North Dakota in a game that is loaded with playoff implications.

The Bison could potentially clinch a top four seed with a win against the Fighting Hawks, while UND can move into the seed conversation with a victory over NDSU.

NDSU will be without starting right tackle Mason Miller for the remainder of the season after breaking his right fibula late in the first half against Southern Illinois.

The bigger concern centers around All-American fullback Hunter Luepke, who left the game with his left arm in a sling. His status for the game is "unlikely" according to head coach Matt Entz. Luepke is getting a second opinion about his shoulder injury.

WDAY's Dom Izzo and The Forum's Jeff Kolpack break down the injuries and look ahead to the matchup with UND in the latest video blog.
