BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) - Montana State has announced its 2013 football schedule and it does not include an expected game at two-time Football Championship Subdivision winner North Dakota State University.

MSU athletics director Peter Fields says the university needed six home games — and the accompanying ticket sales — to help pay for the Bobcat Stadium expansion, so changes were made.

The Bobcats agreed to a $300,000 payout to play at Southern Methodist University on Sept. 7, used $100,000 of that to buy out NDSU and the other $200,000 to get FCS Independent Monmouth to travel to Bozeman for the season opener.

MSU also has home games against Colorado Mesa, Northern Arizona, UC Davis, Southern Utah and Montana.

The Bobcats travel to Stephen F. Austin, North Dakota, Weber State, Northern Colorado and Eastern Washington.
