The schools have tentative game dates in Fargo in 2015 and in Grand Forks in 2017, UND athletic director Brian Faison said.
â€śUntil contracts are signed, itâ€™s still tentative,â€ť he told the Grand Forks Herald. â€śWeâ€™ll be sending (NDSU) contract drafts ... the first of next week.â€ť
NDSU athletic director Gene Taylor said no details have been worked out, and both university presidents likely will need to weigh in.
â€śEveryone is assuming (the rivalry) is renewed right now,â€ť he told The Forum. â€śItâ€™s not. I have to get together with Brian. Iâ€™ve said we have to get together and get things hammered out.â€ť
