The UND defense is coming off a 2018 season where they were dominant at times and dominated at times. Overall, their effort & results were playoff worthy, but we are sure ‘consistency’ will be the focus as they cast their gaze to the 2019 season.

The Sunday before Signing Day is always a nerve-racking night for football staffs across the country. They typically find out their fate with the few coveted recruits who have not committed at that point.

UND had their destiny laid out in front of them before the ball was even kicked off Saturday. Win and go to the playoffs – more than likely hosting a home game. Lose and the season’s over. In what was a fairly ugly game overall, the Northern Arizona Lumberjacks jumped on the Hawks early and
