Maybe this could be SDSU in the future. One thing for sure, it will not be UND or USD!!

From Sid Hartman's column Sunday Star Trib:

Illinois St. on schedule

Illinois State, a Division I-AA school in football, will replace Baylor on the Gophers schedule on Sept. 11.

Gophers athletic director Joel Maturi talked to Fresno State, but the Bulldogs were not available for a home game here. Baylor withdrew from the Gophers schedule even though Minnesota had played a game in Waco, Texas, as part of the contract. Maturi hopes Baylor will return the game here in the future.

Illinois State had a 6-6 record last year. Among the Redbirds' losses was 49-22 at Illinois.

Funny thing is, that Illinois St. is a better team than Baylor. I'm looking forward to the time in a few years when we can be playing the 1A schools.
