Following a blowout win over Mississippi Valley State to begin the season, the NDSU Bison remain No. 2 in the poll....

    FARGO, ND - Following a blowout win over Mississippi Valley State to begin the season, the NDSU Bison remain No. 2 in the poll. Defending champion James Madison in No. 1, followed by the Bison and then Sam Houston State and South Dakota State in the FCS Coaches poll.

    North Dakota State defeated Mississippi Valley State 72-7 on Saturday at the Fargo Dome.  In the process, the Bison lost a couple of key young players.  Freshman offensive lineman Dillon Radunz and sophmore running back Demaris Purifoy suffered season ending ACL tears in the win.  

    The task will be much harder for NDSU this week as they travel to Cheney, Washington to take on Eastern Washington. The Eagles are ranked No. 6 in the Coaches poll. Both teams lost in the semifinals last year.

    With their loss at FBS opponent Utah to start the season, the UND Fighting Hawks fall one spot in the Coaches poll to No. 11.  North Dakota will play their home opener Saturday against Missouri State.

     EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Vikings have claimed tight end Blake Bell off waivers from San Francisco.  The Vikings waived rookie tight end Bucky Hodges today with an injured designation, meaning he can be placed on injured reserve if he clears waivers. The sixth-round draft pick from Virginia Tech suffered a concussion in the team's final exhibition game Thursday.
 
     Bell was a fourth-round draft pick out of Oklahoma in 2015. He totaled 271 yards receiving over the past two seasons for the 49ers.
 
     The Vikings also filled their practice squad with quarterback Kyle Sloter, center Cornelius Edison and offensive tackle Cedrick Lang. They previously signed defensive tackle Dylan Bradley, tight end Kyle Carter, running back Bronson Hill, wide receiver Cayleb Jones, linebacker Elijah Lee, defensive end Ifeadi Odenigbo and cornerback Horace Richardson.

     PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pro Bowl running back Le'Veon Bell is officially back at work with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Bell signed his franchise tender today, clearing him to return for the 2017 season. The team placed the franchise tag on Bell in February. He declined to sign his one-year, $12.1 million tender while waiting to see if a long-term deal could be reached.

     MIAMI (AP) - A person familiar with the discussions says the NFL is considering moving the Miami Dolphins' season opener against Tampa Bay to another site or to this week because of Hurricane Irma. Switching the game to Thursday or Friday is being considered, the source said, because Irma could threaten South Florida over the weekend. The game is scheduled for 1 p.m. EDT Sunday in Miami. Playing at another site Sunday is also being discussed.
