North Dakota State remains No. 2 in both FCS polls this week.....

    FARGO, ND - North Dakota State remains No. 2 in both FCS polls this week.  James Madison continues to top both the FCS Coaches poll and STATS FCS Top 25 poll.  Youngstown State, Jacksonville State and Wofford round out this week's top five. The Bison improved to 4-0 with a 38-11 Homecoming win over Missouri State last Saturday. They will continue Missouri Valley Conference play at Indiana State this week.

    FARGO, N.D. (NDSU) - North Dakota State University has completed its 2018 football schedule with the addition of a non-conference home game and two date changes, NDSU director of athletics Matt Larsen announced today.
 
    NDSU will play a seven-game home schedule in 2018 with the addition of Cal Poly for the season-opener on Saturday, Sept. 1.  It is the third time in school history that the Bison have seven regular-season home games scheduled (1998 and 2000).
 
    North Dakota State's season-opener previously was Delaware, which has been moved to Sept. 22, and that week's game vs. North Alabama has moved up one week to Sept. 15.
 
    Missouri Valley Football Conference play in 2018 opens at home against South Dakota State in the annual Dakota Marker game Sept. 29, giving the Bison four home games in the month of September.
 
    Other home games are Oct. 20 against Illinois State, Nov. 3 against Youngstown State, and the regular-season finale Nov. 17 against Southern Illinois.
 
    Road games in conference play are at Northern Iowa and Western Illinois back-to-back weeks Oct. 6 and 13, as well as South Dakota on Oct. 27 and Missouri State on Nov. 10.
 
    NDSU will not face Indiana State in 2018 and 2019 due to the league's schedule rotation.

     EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Vikings say running back Dalvin Cook will miss the remainder of his rookie season because of a torn ACL in his left knee.
 
     Coach Mike Zimmer confirmed the diagnosis today. Cook was injured trying to cut for more yards near the end of a run in the third quarter of Minnesota's loss to Detroit on Sunday. Cook lost a fumble on the play and needed help off the field. He was on crutches, wearing a bulky brace afterward. With 354 yards, Cook is third in the NFL in rushing. He has two touchdowns, plus 11 receptions for 90 yards.
 
     Latavius Murray will take over as the lead running back for the Vikings (2-2), who play at Chicago next Monday.

     CHICAGO (AP) - The Chicago Bears are going to give prized rookie quarterback Mitchell Trubisky a try. The team says the No. 2 overall draft pick from North Carolina will start against the Minnesota Vikings next Monday night after Mike Glennon struggled in the first four games.
 
     It's hardly a surprise that the Bears (1-3) will go with Trubisky considering how badly Glennon has struggled. He has five interceptions and three lost fumbles. He got picked off twice, lost a fumble on a sack and had another snap ricochet off his knee for a lost fumble in Thursday's 35-14 loss at Green Bay.

     ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Wild will start the regular season without veteran left wing Zach Parise, who has been slowed by a back injury. General manager Chuck Fletcher said after practice today that Parise would not travel to games at Detroit on Thursday and at Carolina on Saturday. Fletcher said Parise was "having a hard time getting over the hump." The 33-year-old played in no preseason games. The goal is for Parise to practice with the team next week.
 
     The Wild assigned center Luke Kunin to their AHL affiliate today and placed defenseman Ryan Murphy on waivers with the intent to assign him to Iowa, reducing their training-camp roster to 22 players. That doesn't include veteran left wing Daniel Winnik, who's on a tryout contract.

     LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Louisville's athletic board has authorized interim President Greg Postel to proceed with firing men's basketball coach Rick Pitino in the wake of a federal bribery investigation involving the program. The school's Athletics Association, a separate body of officials that oversees Louisville's sports program, unanimously approved a resolution to fire Pitino after meeting for more than two hours today.
 
     Pitino was placed on unpaid administrative leave last week after law enforcement officials announced the probe and the school acknowledged its inclusion in the investigation. Though Pitino is not named in court complaints, Postel says the allegations violated his contract and provided just cause to be placed on unpaid leave.
 
     Athletic director Tom Jurich was placed on administrative leave and Postel says he plans to announce an interim replacement Tuesday.
