    FARGO, ND - The NDSU Bison football team begins the season on Saturday against Butler in a game that will be played at Target Field in Minneapolis.

    North Dakota State owns the longest active winning streak in the FCS at 21 games, which is second longest in Missouri Valley Football Conference history and tied for sixth longest in FCS history behind the record 33-game Bison winning streak from 2012 to 2014.

    North Dakota State returns three offensive starters and four defensive starters from last year's 15-0 national championship team. Offensive linemen Dillon Radunz and Zack Johnson return with tight end Ben Ellefson on the offensive unit. On defense, the Bison return their leading tackler in Buck Buchanan Award candidate Jabril Cox at linebacker, second-leading sack-getter in defensive end Derrek Tuszka, leading pass defender James Hendricks at safety, and cornerback Marquise Bridges.

    Kickoff is 3 pm on Saturday.



    BISMARCK, N.D. - The McQuade Family and Charity Softball Board has announcing a $100,000 donation to the Sanford Health Foundation.  The generous donation will benefit the Sanford POWER Softball Academy, a camp held for six weeks in the winter to help young athletes improve their softball mechanics and hitting. Because of the McQuade Family and Charity Softball Board's gift, the softball academy will be called, the McQuade Softball Academy.

    The academy is a performance-training program, which will enhance athletic skill, build character and develop softball technique. The six-week program is available for players age eight and up and begins in January 2020. The main three skills focused on during the academy are hitting, fielding and pitching.

    "We really appreciate the opportunity for an organization like Sanford POWER to enhance the growth of softball in the area," said Shannon McQuade. "These young athletes that will go through the academy are those players that will be playing in our charity tournament down the road. We just celebrated our 44th tournament, and it's because of programs like this that we can look forward to many more."

    Each skill set costs $100 to attend.



     CHICAGO (AP) - The Minnesota Twins broke a major league record for most home runs on the road, getting back-to-back homers in the third inning for 140.
     Jake Cave led off the third with a solo shot off Chicago White Sox right-hander Dylan Cease to give AL Central leaders the record. That surpassed the 138 set by the San Francisco Giants in 2001.
     C.J. Cron followed with a drive to center to give Minnesota 140 longballs on the road.

    Cave slammed another to lead off the seventh.
     The Twins have a major league leading 261 home runs overall this season.



     UNDATED (AP) - The college football season gets started in earnest tonight after last week's warmup, kicking off a full Labor Day weekend schedule.

     TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - The Arizona Cardinals have traded offensive lineman Korey Cunningham to the New England Patriots for a sixth-round pick in next year's draft. The Cardinals announced the trade today. The move is pending a physical for Cunningham. The 6-foot-6, 311-pound Cunningham started six games at left tackle for the Cardinals last season. The 24-year-old was selected in the seventh round of the 2018 draft out of Cincinnati.



     NEW YORK (AP) - Brooklyn Nets forward Wilson Chandler has been suspended 25 games without pay by the NBA for testing positive for a drug that increases the release of growth hormone (Ipamorelin). The league says today that Chandler's suspension will begin with the first regular-season game in which he is healthy and eligible to play.

     The Nets signed the veteran forward during their busy offseason. He could play a valuable role in the absence of Kevin Durant, who is still recovering from a ruptured Achilles tendon. Chandler, a first-round pick of the New York Knicks in 2007, has averaged 12.9 points in 11 seasons.



     NEW YORK (AP) - Defending champion Naomi Osaka has rolled to a 6-2, 6-4 victory over Magda Linette in the second round of the U.S. Open, while No. 6 seed Petra Kvitova lost to 88th-ranked Andrea Petkovic, 6-4, 6-4.

     No. 6 seed Alexander Zverev reached the third round with his second five-setter of the week, edging Frances Tiafoe 6-3, 3-6, 6-2, 2-6, 6-3 to improve to 5-0 in matches that go the distance in 2019.

     Others in action today include past U.S. Open champions Rafael Nadal and Stan Wawrinka, reigning Wimbledon champ Simona Halep, Caroline Wozniacki and 15-year-old Coco Gauff.
