GRAND FORKS, N.D. – The Big Sky Conference sets future football schedules up into four-year blocks and league officials have released the next segment, which covers the 2016-19 seasons. The 2016 season will be the fifth for UND in its new conference home.

UND will play its two protected rivalry foes – Montana State and Northern Colorado – on the road in 2016 and 2018, while playing host to the Bobcats and Bears in 2017 and 2019. Those are the only two teams in the Big Sky that UND will play each season.

Teams that UND will play three times over the four-year span include Idaho State, Sacramento State, Southern Utah and Weber State. UND will play the remainder of its league foes twice. That grouping includes Cal Poly, Eastern Washington, Montana, Northern Arizona, Portland State and UC Davis.

As for the non-conference schedule for those four seasons, UND has an open date in 2017 (Sept. 9), 2018 (Sept. 1) and four open dates in 2019 to fill.
