The Oregon Ducks and the North Dakota State Bison will meet in 2020, NDSU announced today.
North Dakota State will travel to take on Oregon at Autzen Stadium in Eugene on Sept. 5, 2020. The game will be the first ever between the two schools on the football field.
“What a tremendous opportunity for our football program,” said NDSU athletic director Matt Larsen. “Having an FBS opponent creates a lot of excitement among our alumni and fan base, and is great exposure for our team, our university, and FCS football as a whole.”
NDSU is 8-3 against teams from the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) and have won five straight – at Kansas, Minnesota, Colorado State, Kansas State and Iowa State.
The addition of North Dakota State tentatively completes Oregon’s non-conference schedule in 2020. The Ducks are also scheduled to host Ohio State on Sept. 12 and Hawaii on Sept. 19.
