Bison players prepare for Dakota Marker

By  | 

FARGO, N.D. - On Wednesday, Carson Wentz talked about the Dakota Marker bet he has with Dallas Goedert. Wentz played for the Bison and Goedert is an Eagles rookie from the Jackrabbits.

The guy who replaced Carson in the NDSU lineup played perhaps his worst game last year in Brookings and Easton Stick does not want a repeat performance.

"Frustrating, I didn't play very well, turning the football over. They're a good football team so you can't beat anybody when you're turning the football over, let alone a good team like they are, so I'm going to have to play better," said Stick, NDSU Quarterback.

Another reason why this is such a good rivalry is both teams often recruit the same players, which means family also follows it closely.

"They're rooting for us, absolutely rooting for us. Either way they would, both my dad and my brother played at USD so you know how they feel about SDSU. They'll be up at this game so I have a lot of family up here. It's going to be an exciting week," said Dan Marlette, NDSU Linebacker.

"It's a big game, it's a rivalry. The fans and communities care a ton about it and it's important to both teams, so obviously we want to win it back," said Stick.
