FARGO, N.D. (AP) – North Dakota State football fans are making plans to take over the Texas town of Frisco – again.

The Bison will be aiming for their third straight Football Championship Subdivision title in the Jan. 4 game against Towson at Toyota Stadium. NDSU officials say there have been 6,000 requests for the 4,000 tickets that have been made available.

The school has scheduled a pep fest Friday at a 10,000-seat baseball stadium.

Entertainment at this year’s pep fest will be provided by 32 Below, a Fargo-based country rock band. Drummer Luke Nygaard says the band members are huge Bison fans and are happy the booking includes tickets to the game.

Two years ago, a hotel that sponsored the NDSU pep rally was surprised by the crowd and ran out of beer.
