When East Tennessee State comes into the Fargodome to play North Dakota State, it'll do so with a lot of momentum.

The Buccaneers have won five straight games, including a down to the wire win over Kennesaw State in the second round of the FCS Playoffs. It's just the third time ETSU has made the playoffs, only the second time since 1996.

"If you would've told me in 2017 and when I was in here getting introduced for the head coach job we would be one of the last eight teams standing in 2021, I would've probably jumped on that opportunity," head coach Randy Sanders said.

It will be double duty time for new Summit League commissioner Josh Fenton. He'll finish out his tenure with the National Collegiate Hockey Conference before transitioning to solely leading the Summit.
