MINOT, N.D. (MSU) – The Minot State Beavers (0-2) are looking to bounce back from their 34-0 loss to the Sioux Falls Cougars last weekend. MSU is hosting the Wayne State College Wildcats (2-0) today at 1 p.m. on First Bank Western Field at Herb Parker Stadium. The Wildcats own a 4-1 series over the Beavers since MSU joined the NSIC. Last season the Wildcats rolled to a 48-0 victory over the Beavers. The Wildcats are 2-0 to start the year.
Grand Forks, N.D. (UND) – After rallying to defeat Northern Iowa 29-27 last weekend, #22 North Dakota will return to non-conference action this weekend and will visit Northern Arizona. The Fighting Hawks and Lumberjacks will face off at Findlay Toyota Field at 3 p.m. (CT) today. Both teams are 1-1 on the season. This will be the eighth all-time meeting between the Hawks and Lumberjacks, and the first since 2018 when Northern Arizona won 31-16. The Lumberjacks hold a 5-2 lead in the series. The wins by the Fighting Hawks came in 2014 and 2016.
FARGO, ND (NDSU) – North Dakota State plays its first Football Bowl Subdivision opponent in six years tonight, when the Bison (2-0) take on the Arizona Wildcats (1-1) of the Pac-12 Conference. Game time is 10 p.m. CDT at Arizona Stadium (50,782) in Tucson, Ariz. Today’s game will be televised live nationally on Fox Sports 1. This is North Dakota State’s first meeting against a Pac-12 opponent. The Bison were scheduled to play Oregon in 2020, but that game was canceled due to COVID-19 and has been rescheduled for 2028. North Dakota State is 9-3 against FBS opponents and has won six in a row since 2010 with wins at Kansas (6-3), Minnesota (37-24), Colorado State (22-7), Kansas State (24-21), Iowa State (34-14) and 11th-ranked Iowa (23-21). NDSU’s first three FBS wins were against Ball State (2006), Central Michigan (2007) and Minnesota (2007).
CLEVELAND (AP) — Pinch-runner Ernie Clement raced home from second base on a wild pitch in the eighth inning for the go-ahead run and the AL-Central leading Cleveland Guardians rallied for a 4-3 win over the Minnesota Twins on Friday night in the opener of a crucial five-game series. Clement ran for Josh Naylor, who led off the eighth with a single and took second on Oscar Gonzalez’s single. Jhoan Duran’s 2-1 pitch to Andrés Giménez bounced in front of catcher Gary Sánchez and went back to the screen on the fly. Sánchez couldn’t find the ball initially and Clement rounded third and slid headfirst into the home plate, beating Sánchez’s throw.
Cleveland leads third-place Minnesota by five games and has clinched the season series with a 10-5 edge, giving the Guardians the tiebreaker. The teams play a day-night doubleheader today followed by games Sunday and Monday. Cleveland swept a three-game series at Target Field last weekend and has won six straight over the Twins. The Guardians also gained a game on the Chicago White Sox, who lost 3-2 to Detroit in 10 innings. The Twins will add LHP Louie Varland (0-0, 3.38 ERA) as the 29th man to start today’s first game against Cleveland RHP Shane Bieber (10-8, 2.91 ERA). RHP Josh Winder (4-4, 3.83 ERA) will start the second game for Minnesota against LHP Konnor Pilkington (1-2, 4.30 ERA) who will be the Guardians’ 29th man.
EAGAN, Minn. (AP) — Justin Jefferson has proven to be one of the most difficult receivers in the NFL to cover, starting his third season seemingly with the potential to dominate the game for the next decade. The Minnesota Vikings are trying to toughen the task for their opponents, just by making it harder to figure out where Jefferson is going to be. As the 23-year-old keeps moving up on the lists of all-time records, the Vikings are moving him around the field as much as their playbook and the rules will allow — particularly before the snap. “I can be so many different places,” Jefferson said. “That’s how we kind of get away from the man to man, and if they do play man to man, we’ve got something for it.”
New coach Kevin O’Connell uses the term “illusion of complexity” to describe the offense he and his staff have installed with the Vikings, meaning an attempt to make the other team think there’s a lot going on when the assignment for each player is actually quite simple. Jefferson’s first of two touchdowns in the opener last week against Green Bay, when he torched the Packers for 184 receiving yards in the 23-7 victory, was a fourth-down play that began with him running from left to right behind quarterback Kirk Cousins before the ball was snapped. Fellow wide receiver Adam Thielen was lined up in the slot, and his slant route prompted two Packers defenders to initially turn his way. That left Jefferson all alone in the flat for the walk-in score.
“You know seven times out of 10 that he’s involved in the offensive play. Then when you get him moving, now the defense has to think — rethink what he’s doing from the position that he started in to what he’s doing in the new position,” said Vikings cornerback Patrick Peterson, providing the other-side-of-the-ball perspective. “It’s going to be a great ride, and I can’t wait to see where it’s going to take us.” Thielen, who’s in his 10th year in the league, has marveled at Jefferson’s swift mastery of the position since he was drafted in the first round in 2020. “He makes it look so easy and smooth that it doesn’t really like flash out at you,” Thielen said. “Maybe the play wasn’t necessarily designed for man coverage, but he was able to beat it anyway.”
The syncing of the offense will be challenged on Monday night when the Vikings visit Philadelphia and those relentlessly raucous Eagles fans. Jefferson will be squarely in the spotlight again, as the player the Eagles passed on to draft wide receiver Jalen Reagor instead, one spot in front of him. “That’s when I like to have the best game, to showcase to the world what I have, and my argument is being the best receiver,” Jefferson said, adding: “Every mock draft had me going to Philly, so when Philly was on the board, getting a phone call and it being Minnesota, it was definitely a shocker. But I’m definitely happy, way more happy, to be here than there.” Reagor was traded to the Vikings last month. Minnesota also signed linebacker Jordan Hicks in the spring. Hicks played his first four years for Philadelphia, the last being the 2017-18 championship season. The Eagles won the Super Bowl, of course, at U.S. Bank Stadium.
When the Vikings went downtown to practice there early in training camp, Hicks felt those good memories rush back. “Every time I think back, it’s like a book. It’s a like a story. You’re opening the pages again,” said Hicks, who tied a career high with 14 tackles and had a sack and a forced fumble against Green Bay. Now he’ll try to repeat that performance in another familiar venue, even if it’s no longer friendly. “I’d imagine it’ll be pretty hostile, which is exciting. Anytime that juice is out there, it does nothing but amp you up,” Hicks said. “I’m excited.”
