GRAND FORKS, N.D. -- The University of North Dakota's football and baseball programs will highlight the final UND Fan Luncheon of the season, set for today at Alerus Center.
The University of North Dakota football program will host its final spring scrimmage on Saturday, April 25 at Memorial Stadium on the UND campus.
University of North Dakota head football coach Bubba Schweigert announced on Tuesday that Minnesota linebacker Jephete Matilus has joined his program for his final collegiate season.
The weather on Monday afternoon at Memorial Stadium was hard to predict. With chilly temperatures, things ranged from sunny, rainy, snowy and windy in any combination.
After taking Friday afternoon off, the North Dakota football team returned to the practice field on Saturday morning and put together one of the better practice sessions of the spring.
Players on the North Dakota football team not only competed against each other, but high winds as well during what was a scaled-down, situational scrimmage on Wednesday afternoon at Memorial Stadium.
Ideally, North Dakota offensive line coach Luke Knauf would like to have 16-17 players to work with in his position unit to develop two to three full lines.
The North Dakota football team went through its first live work of spring practices on Friday with a heavy emphasis being placed on the run game.
Defensive line coach Jordan Gigli has a mix of youth and veterans to work with this spring and as the team closes in on the halfway point of those drills, he has been pleased with the progress his group is making.
A third of the way into spring drills, the North Dakota football coaches are relishing in being able to focus in on teaching more of the specific plays instead of the overall concepts of the systems that were installed during their first spring a year ago.
Head coach Bubba Schweigert does not want his team to look past tomorrow. The day-by-day theme was introduced early in his tenure and will remain a constant throughout its duration.
Desire. That's the one word head coach Bubba Schweigert quipped when asked how he would describe what he saw from his team following the first full-pad practice of the spring.
