A longstanding North Dakota college football rivalry that fell apart a decade ago is back......

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A longstanding North Dakota college football rivalry that fell apart a decade ago is back.  North Dakota State and University of North Dakota officials announced today that the schools will play Sept. 19, 2015, at the Fargodome. The contract also includes a 2019 game in Fargo.
 
     The game was once billed as the longest-running rivalry in NCAA Division II football. It crumbled when NDSU moved up to Division I and UND rejected NDSU's request for games in 2004 and 2005.
 
     UND owns a 62-45-3 advantage in the series that dates to 1894. UND won the last meeting in 2003 to claim the Nickel Trophy that has gone to the victorious school since 1938.
 
     NDSU is the three-time defending champion in the Football Championship Subdivision, where both schools now compete.

     FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The longtime director of women's athletics at North Dakota State University is retiring next year.  Lynn Dorn plans to step down at the end of March, after a 37-year career at NDSU. She says she's "forever grateful for the opportunities provided to me."
 
     During Dorn's tenure, NDSU women's teams have won seven national titles and 98 conference or league championships. She also helped lead the school's athletics program from NCAA Division II to Division I.  Dorn says she looks forward to spending more time with family during her retirement.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Philadelphia 76ers have joined the much-publicized planned trade between Minnesota and Cleveland. The addition of the 76ers provides the Timberwolves with a player they needed to make the deal, which sends Kevin Love to Cleveland and No. 1 overall draft pick Andrew Wiggins to Minnesota, happen. The man in question is Thaddeus Young and for parting with him the Sixers are getting guard Alexey Shved and forward Luc Mbah a Moute (BAH'-ah MOO'-tay), along with a No. 1 pick from Miami that belongs to Cleveland.

     KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The last time Matt Cassel stepped inside Arrowhead Stadium, banners were flying overhead for him to be benched. He had been booed at a recent celebrity softball game and become a scapegoat for an entire organization during hard times.
 
     Now, two years later, the former Chiefs quarterback has the inside track on the starting job for the Minnesota Vikings, who visit Kansas City for a preseason game Saturday night.
 
     Both teams are expected to play their starters into the third quarter, though plenty of stars are also expected to sit out. Among them are Vikings running back Adrian Peterson and Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles, who both missed practice time this week.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Vikings are spending another $19.7 million for their new stadium to make sure it has the features they want.  The team said today the new money will guarantee "crucial" features such as massive pivoting glass doors. The Vikings say their contribution now stands at $525.6 million, a little more than half of the roughly billion-dollar project. Taxpayers are paying the rest.  Rising steel costs have pushed the overall price tag to $1.023 billion.
 
     The Vikings and the stadium authority also announced that SMG has signed a 10-year deal to operate the stadium. SMG already runs NFL stadiums in Chicago, New Orleans, Houston and Jacksonville.
 
     The new stadium is due to open in 2016. The Vikings are playing outdoors at the University of Minnesota until then.

     CLEVELAND (AP) - Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel has been fined $12,000 by the NFL for flipping his middle finger at members of the Washington Redskins. A person familiar with the penalty spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the ruling has not been made public. Manziel said he was reacting to taunting by the Redskins during Monday night's nationally televised game.

     BRISTOL, Tenn. (AP) - Qualifying is being conducted today for Sunday's Sprint Cup in Bristol, Tennessee. Former Sprint Cup champion Tony Stewart isn't taking part in the race as he remains in seclusion after hitting and killing a dirt track racer in upstate New York. The overall points leader this year is Jeff Gordon, by three points over Hendrick Motorsports teammate Earnhardt.
