The Alerus Center is gearing up for the return of UND football. The season opener is Thursday, Aug 30, versus Mississippi Valley State -- and the Nickel Trophy will be on display for the first three home games.
Fans can take photos of the trophy that used to go to the winner of the UND-NDSU game. It’ll be shown in the tailgating area and the Alerus Center concourse.
This year, tailgate lots will open five hours before kickoff.
Four new food items are available this season, including pickle fries.
The Alerus Center also says UND’s new Fighting Hawks mascot will be revealed before one of the five home games.
