GRAND FORKS, N.D. – With the 2014 football season opener just over a week away, University of North Dakota fans will have the opportunity to meet this year’s team and first-year head coach Bubba Schweigert on Thursday, Aug. 21, at the Third annual UND Football Fan Fest presented by Midco Sports Network.

The event, which is free to the public, takes place from 7 to 8 p.m. at Memorial Stadium on the UND campus (2nd Ave. N & Columbia Road).
