I’m leaning towards the Bison here. I’m not necessarily running to the window to bet this thing, but this should still be a great game. Now South Dakota State does have past experience running through the Summit League, but I have to emphasize past as a lot of the top dogs from those Jackrabbit teams are gone. North Dakota State was just as hot down the stretch and these two teams split the two meetings in the regular season, with North Dakota State getting the cover in both. I’ll lean towards the Bison and the points here.
