GRAND FORKS — UND's annual Homecoming Week reached a high point Saturday with the annual homecoming parade — a high point, that is, that later was surpassed by the football team's win a few hours later at the Alerus Center.

It was a culmination of a week of festivities, at UND and also throughout the community.

And after the parade concluded, UND earned a 48-31 win over No. 7-ranked Missouri State in front of 10,000 fans at the Alerus Center.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
