New details on the Bison football team's trip to the White House

WASHINGTON The date is set for the NDSU Football team to travel to the White House.

Sen. John Hoeven says, "We've settled on March 4th and I talked to the President in person last week. He was asking some great questions about the Bison, like 'well can they beat Alabama?' And things like that. It was a lot of fun, we had a great time. But he said, he said we are going to put on, we're going to have a great event. I think that's what he said, we're going to have a great event."

President Trump extended the invitation to the Bison football team on Friday.
