GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - The University of North Dakota football team is holding a bash for its fans.

UND scheduled its third annual Football Fan Fest at Memorial Stadium on Thursday night to give fans an opportunity to meet this year’s team and first-year head coach Bubba Schweigert. He was hired late last year to replace the fired Chris Mussman.

UND opens the season on the road at San Jose State on Aug. 28. The home opener is Sept. 6 against Robert Morris at the Alerus Center.

All UND home games this season are being broadcast live regionally on the Midco Sports Network.
