Report: Fargodome is Top Venue in Missouri Valley Conference [VIDEO]
North Dakota State is the most dominant team in FCS football the last two seasons, winninng back-to-back national championships. That kind of success starts at home, and at least one national media outlet is putting the Bison’s home venue among the best in the nation.
The results have been impressive – NDSU is 22-3 on its home field in the last three seasons. Three of those wins have come against South Dakota State (including a 2nd round playoff game last season), one has come against South Dakota.
As a structure, the Fargodome isn’t overly impressive, but what happens in and around the building is.
SportsNetwork.com has the Fargodome as its third best stadium in the country at the FCS level.
The roof often seems as if it’s about to come off the indoor home of the two-time defending FCS national champions. The crowds have grown in recent seasons and the decibel level has skyrocketed to ridiculous levels for the opposition.
The pyrotechnics, music and video board integration with screens across the dome are unmatched by other conference institutions.
And the tailgating makes for a full-day event, so when the Bison start beating up on the opposition, the good folk of Fargo are in a winning mood. It’s hard for any fan to leave disappointed.
Another Missouri Valley venue made the ‘Another Must-See’ list: Northern Iowa’s home, the UNI-Dome, in Cedar Falls.
