FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota State football team will play a game on the Minnesota Twins’ home field in 2019.

The Twins and school officials announced Monday that the five-time defending Football Championship Subdivision winners will square off against Butler at Target Field.

The Bison-Butler game is scheduled for Aug. 31, 2019. It will be the first meeting between the schools.

Bison athletic director Matt Larsen says the game fits in perfectly with the 2019 season because FCS teams will be allowed to play 12 regular-season games. That means the Bison don’t have to give up one of their customary six homes games at the Fargodome.

Target Field holds nearly 39,000 fans. The downtown Minneapolis ballpark will host its first football game when St. Thomas plays St. John’s in September.
