NDSU Spring FB game to be televised
FARGO — North Dakota State University’s annual Green-Gold spring football game will be televised live statewide on the North Dakota NBC Sports Network for the first time in the program’s history at 1 p.m. Saturday, April 21, from the Fargodome according to NDSU director of broadcasting Jeremy Jorgenson.
Stations on the North Dakota NBC Sports Network include KVLY-TV (Channel 11, Fargo), KFYR-TV (Channel 5, Bismarck), KMOT-TV (Channel 10, Minot), KQCD-TV (Channel 7, Dickinson) and KUMV-TV (Channel 8, Williston).
Coverage begins with a pregame show at 12:30 p.m. April 21 from inside the Fargodome. Valley News Live sports director Dan Hammer will handle the play-by-play and former NDSU standout quarterback Kevin Feeney will serve as color analyst.
North Dakota State head coach Craig Bohl is scheduled to join the broadcast team in the second half, while defensive coordinator Chris Klieman will wear a microphone during the broadcast and several clips will be shown on delay as a special segment.
According to Jorgenson, the broadcast team and cameras will set up on the west side of the Fargodome to shoot towards the crowd and offer a creative look with lower camera angles.
The game will also be broadcast on 790 KFGO-AM Fargo. The radio broadcast starts at 12:55 p.m. Scott Miller will call the play-by-play, Phil Hansen will handle the color duties and Jorgenson will be on the sidelines.

North Dakota State won the program’s first NCAA Division I Football Championship with a 17-6 win over Sam Houston State on Jan. 7 and also claimed the program’s first Missouri Valley Football Conference title.
North Dakota State opens the 2012 season Sept. 1 against Robert Morris University, a rematch of the 2010 NCAA FCS first-round playoff game.
