FARGO, N.D. — The mayor of Frisco, Texas, is coming to Fargo to help North Dakota State celebrate its home opener in football.
Frisco is the site of the annual Football Championship Subdivision title game, which NDSU has won the last three years. An estimated 10,000 Bison fans made the trek to Frisco for the game in January.
NDSU officials say Frisco Mayor Maher Maso will participate in a corporate flag-raising event Friday and conduct the coin toss before kickoff of Saturday’s game against Incarnate Word of San Antonio, Texas.
Maso was elected mayor in 2008 and re-elected in 2011. His term expires in 2017.
The top-ranked Bison have won 26 consecutive games.
