The holidays may be here, but the machine of college football rolls on without a break.

National Signing Day came and went on Wednesday with North Dakota State adding 20 high school players and two transfers. Barnesville's Hunter Zenzen will transfer in from Iowa State and play defensive end, along with Bowling Green's Marcus Sheppard, he will play cornerback for the Bison.

Zenzen will have three years of eligibility, Sheppard will have two.

Head coach Matt Entz dropped a mini-bombshell during his Signing Day press conference, with the news that senior running back TaMerik Williams will use an extra year of eligibility and return to the Bison in 2023. It was understood that Williams was going to be moving on after this season wrapped to give the NFL a shot.

That means that NDSU will return both top running backs next season in Kobe Johnson and Williams.


Kolpack and Izzo also go into the elevation of the NDSU - SDSU rivalry and how this game has been a long time in the making.

Lastly they discuss what the fan turnout could potentially be for this game in Frisco.
