"We are pleased to secure these games for our Bison and Jackrabbit fans, and we look forward to showcasing their student-athletes from an outstanding venue," said Mark Powell, Midco's VP of Midco SN.
"We have had a long and excellent partnership with MidcoSN, and this broadcast is another example of that" said SDSU Athletic Director Justin Sell. "We're very excited to have our men's basketball team featured in a highly anticipated non-conference game inside a venue worthy of the Super Bowl and the Final Four. This is a great opportunity for us to elevate our brand not only as an athletic department, but also as a university."
"The exposure of having this game in the Twin Cities at a venue of this magnitude – in addition to a high-quality MidcoSN broadcast – is continuing to build excitement for the matchup," said NDSU Head Coach David Richman. "It’s another great example of NDSU's partnership with MidcoSN."
