McFeely Mess podcast: Bison will face re-tooled Arizona program this fall

Arizona landed perhaps the best recruiting class in the Pac-12 Conference and a top-25 class nationally among all Football Bowl Subdivision teams. A team that has been one of the worst FBS programs in the country might be significantly better as many of the top freshmen and transfers are expected to play for the Wildcats. The teams play in September in Tucson.

FARGO — University of Arizona sports reporter Michael Lev joins podcast host Mike McFeely of The Forum to discuss how the Wildcats, 1-11 in 2021, have re-tooled with a top recruiting class and transfers. What once looked like a prime opportunity for North Dakota State's football team to pick up a win over an FBS team has taken on a different vibe.

The Bison and Arizona are scheduled to play Sept. 17 in Tucson, NDSU's first FBS game in six years.

There will be plenty of time to digest and discuss as spring practice doesn't start until next month and the game between the Bison and Wildcats is seven months away.
