College Game Day Report ~ The Dakota Marker was on the Line...

The Dakota Marker is the trophy awarded to the winner of the annual college football game played between the 
NDSU Bison and the SDSU Jackrabbits.
The Dakota Marker is a model replica of the quartzite monuments that were used to decipher the border between North and South Dakota when Dakota Territory was split into 2 states.

So, the Bison traveled across the border, ready to play some football,
and NDSU retains the Dakota Marker.

And at the same time...on a different channel...
our neighbors to the south were playing our neighbors to the east.

The University of Nebraska was at the University of Minnesota.
The Huskers did not disappoint.

Everyone is so all about college football, and I pretty much pay no attention to it. I'm such an outcast. On college football day at school, I had no sweatshirt to wear, had to borrow someones.
