UND Football faces tough schedule in 2019

By  | 

GRAND FORKS, N.D. (Valley News Live) -- The University of North Dakota Football team continues working towards the start of its schedule – and what a schedule it is.

Six of the teams on the docket are ranked in the FCS STATS Preseason Top 25, three of those games coming against preseason Top Five (North Dakota State, Eastern Washington, UC Davis).

UND Head Coach Bubba Schweigert speaking Tuesday at Media Day said the ultimate goal for his team is to make the 24 team FCS Tournament field.

"It is a great opportunity, there are so many opportunities to have really good wins to build confidence in our program and be really good for our football team," Schweigert said.

If his team can pick up wins in those games it will certainly bolster their resume to the selection committee.

UND opens the 2019 season Saturday, August 31 at home against Drake.
