The four-year segment was for games from 2016-19.

Per the 13-member league setup, UND will continue to play Northern Colorado and Montana State every season while the remainder of the conference opponents are on a rotational basis.

In 2016, UND will not face a pair of the Big Sky’s common power teams Eastern Washington and Montana.

As for the non-conference portion of the slate, the schedules show UND has an open date in both 2017 (Sept. 9) and 2018 (Sept. 1) and four open dates in 2019.

The limited non-conference openings demonstrate UND’s window to schedule North Dakota State is small. The two teams haven’t played against each other since 2003.

UND and NDSU have one matching open date in 2015 (Sept. 19), although the schools have not come to an agreement regarding the rivalry restarting.
