Students camp out ahead of Bison playoff game

FARGO — Some North Dakota State University students camped outside the Fargodome overnight ahead of Saturday's NDSU Bison football playoff game.

WDAY television reports that three students have camped out for the past three games, but finals forced them to start a bit later this time — at 4 p.m. Friday.

The freshman and sophomores brought tents, sleeping bags, and three space heaters to try to stay warm, and passed the time by tossing the football.

Sophomore Cody Strom says a few people think they're crazy but also commend their spirit and think it's a great thing.

The FCS semifinal game against Georgia Southern kicks off at 1:30 p.m.
