The folks over at the UND Athletic department have been hard at work laying out the future of UND football scheduling.
In the latest Bill Chaves Podcast, External AD Kyle Doperalski and Chaves lay out three new home & home FCS games along with the future FBS games that have been speculated at over the past month or so.

Interesting that UND is leveraging their relationships with the Big Sky teams to keep them on the future schedules. Being that the Hawks join the MVFC in 2020, it makes a ton of sense to schedule Big Sky teams to keep familiarity on the schedule for the fans while also boosting their resume with solid teams.
We also love the fact that UND is moving their FBS focus to the midwest with the addition of Missouri, Kansas State, Iowa State and Nebraska. That is the area they will be playing and recruiting in so it only makes sense. Nice work by Doperalski and Chaves.
Doperalski also stated in the podcast that UND is fully scheduled out through 2021. They are currently working to fill the 2022 schedule.
