It appears the two smallest crowds for North Dakota State football games this season will be the first two Division I FCS playoff games. About 2,000 tickets were still available as of Thursday afternoon for Saturday morning’s quarterfinal clash with Colgate at Gate City Bank Field at the Fargodome. The response from NDSU athletic director Matt Larsen was twofold. “Grateful for all the fans that continue to support us in great numbers compared to other FCS schools,” he said. “Disappointed in the drop of attendance when you look at the incredible run our team has been on. We’re undefeated, 12-0 with the No. 1 seed and empty seats in the dome is disappointing.” NDSU drew 17,007 in the 52-10 win over Montana State last weekend in a facility that carries a capacity of almost 19,000, including standing-room only tickets. The Bison drew at least 18,008 for all seven regular season games. The Bison drew 17,008 fans in last season’s quarterfinals victory against Wofford at the Fargodome. – Jeff Kolpack, inforum – Read More
