ABERDEEN, S.D. (MSU) – Revved up and ready to go, the Minot State football team hits the road this weekend looking to tackle Northern State and get in the win column. The Beavers (0-5 overall, 0-5 NSIC) built momentum with solid play in all facets of the game against defending NSIC co-champ Wayne State before the injury bug slowed Minot State’s momentum, but the Beavers hope to put that behind them and continue moving forward against the Wolves (1-4, 1-4). Kick-off against Northern State today is at 2:30 p.m. in Aberdeen, South Dakota.
GRAND FORKS, N.D. (UND) – North Dakota will host Western Illinois today. Kickoff between the Fighting Hawks and Fighting Leathernecks is slated for 1 p.m. inside the Alerus Center.

This is the 15th meeting between North Dakota State and Missouri State. NDSU has won 11 straight to take a 12-2 lead in the series dating back to 2008, NDSU’s first season in the Missouri Valley Football Conference. The Bison and Bears did not play last year due to the MVFC scheduling rotation. NDSU won the last meeting 27-20 in Fargo on Oct. 23, 2021.
HOUSTON (AP) — Houston manager Dusty Baker admitted this week that Carlos Correa is one of his favorite players. That goodwill toward the former Astros star turned Minnesota mainstay won’t extend into this weekend, when Houston hosts the Twins in the AL Division Series. “Personally, I don’t care if it’s my brother or my mama or dad or anybody on the other side,” Baker said. “If they’re on the other side when the game time starts, well, they are the opposition.” Correa was drafted first overall by Houston in 2012 and spent seven seasons with the Astros before signing with the Twins prior to the 2022 season. He remains close with many Astros players and coaches but agreed with Baker that he’ll push that aside when the best-of-five series starts today. “We’ll be friends again after this series,” Correa said Friday. “Right now, we’re both … focused on winning this series. It’s an important one.”
The shortstop has put his past with Houston behind him and is focused on his future with the Twins. But he admitted it’s nice to be back in the city this week and see some of the fans who loved him so much when he was a perennial postseason star for the Astros. “I went to eat last night, and all the Astros fans are wishing me good luck,” Correa said. “I’m like: ‘are you sure you want to wish me good luck?’” The Twins swept the Blue Jays 2-0 in the first round to win a playoff series for the first time in 21 years and get the chance to face the defending champion Astros, who are in their seventh-consecutive Division Series. Houston’s Justin Verlander opposes Minnesota’s Bailey Ober in the opener and Astros’ left-hander Framber Valdez faces Pablo López in Game 2 on Sunday night.
