FARGO -- It's a game six months in the making for North Dakota State. The Bison get the rematch they've waited for since the spring season against South Dakota State on Saturday. The Dakota Marker game returns after the Jackrabbits marched into the Fargodome and knocked off NDSU this past April.

The University of North Dakota is again having to regroup from a heartbreaking loss. With its loss to Missouri State, UND has lost four Missouri Valley Football Conference games by seven points or less. With the home stretch coming, and playoff hopes dwindling, the Fighting Hawks know the chances to learn from those losses is running thin.

See that and more in today's 6 PM sportscast from WDAY.
