At the FCS level, North Dakota State is one of the best when it comes to hype videos. Their latest one, a few days before embarking on their quest for a 5th straight national title, is no exception.
"It comes down to your preparation, and the ability to know, with full belief, that you will execute. This is your time. There is no possible way to prepare for heart, and passion, and conviction that you, as a team, bring every day," a voice in the video explains.
"You've been knocked down, and you've risen up. You've been challenged, and you've risen up. You continue to fight with one heartbeat. Now you have to choose to dig down deep on a whole new level, each and every single one of you owning your piece of the process, attacking the process, and dig down deep."
"Everything you need is already in you."
NDSU has brought home the last four FCS National titles under two different head coaches. But Jacksonville State is a very deserving opponent.
In the title game, two of the premier minds at the FCS level will square off on Saturday at noon when defensive minded Chris Klieman and his Bison take on offensive mastermind John Grass and the Gamecocks. If you like quality football, you're going to want to carve time out of your day on Saturday for this title game.
Can NDSU keep the dynasty alive? Or will Jacksonville State spoil the party?
