Montana State @ North Dakota

Current Records: Montana State 2-2; North Dakota 2-2

What to Know

The North Dakota Fighting Hawks are home Sunday, but with the point spread against them by 7.5 points, it might not be quite the welcoming they would prefer. They will take on the Montana State Bobcats at 2 p.m. ET at Betty Engelstad Sioux Center. North Dakota isn't expected to win, but seeing as the odds didn't stop them last game, maybe the squad has another upset up their sleeve.

The Fighting Hawks came out on top in a nail-biter against the Elon Phoenix this past Thursday, sneaking past 77-73.

Meanwhile, Montana State simply couldn't be stopped this past Friday, as they easily beat the Warner Pacific Knights at home 106-64.

The wins brought both teams up to an identical 2-2. With back-to-back wins few and far between for both teams -- they're both 0-1 after winning this season -- a win will be a boon for either squad.
