They had to wait a year, but the North Dakota State University Bison and its fans got revenge on the University of Minnesota Saturday.
The Bison, which plays in a smaller college division, defeated the Gophers 27 - 21 at the Dome. Last year, the Bison narrowly lost 10 to 9.
NDSU fans literally came by the thousands to support their team. Saturday morning at the old Depot in downtown Minneapolis, NDSU hosted a pre-game party. 5,000 fans attended and they cheered to the sounds of the school band.
The Alumni Association expected 25,000 fans to fill the Dome.
Prior to the game, as one Bison fan put it "They better not underestimate the Bison because we're actually a much better team than they are this year."
On Saturday at the Dome, the Bison backed up the faithful's boasts.
