Bison look to deflate No. 13 Gophers


North Dakota State is at Williams Arena for a non-conference matchup with the No. 13 Golden Gophers tonight.

Last year, the Bison almost upset the Gophers, losing 63-59, as Ralph Sampson III and Rodney Williams combined for 29 points in the victory.

This year, the Bison (8-2) are tough again, with a 6-2 record against Divison I teams. According to the FromTheBarn blog on "The Gophers won’t be able to waltz in expecting to win be merely making an appearance."

Minnesota will likely need to beat the Bison tonight --- and Lafayette on Dec. 22 --- to sneak into the Associated Press Top 10. After Lafayette, we’ll get a clearer picture of how good the Gophers are with the Big 10 schedule starting New Year’s Eve against No. 19 Michigan State.
