MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (KMSP) - Target Field has announced it will host another college football game. North Dakota State University will host Butler University on Aug. 31, 2019. It will be the first time these two have played each other and both of their season-openers. This will be the first Division 1 football game at Target Field.
Target Field says complete ticket information will be available at a later date and student tickets will be available at a discounted price. NDSU says the tickets to this game will not be in the season ticket package, but season ticket holders will be able to purchase tickets before the general public.
NDSU has more than 12,000 alumni in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area and almost 26,000 across the state.
"The Minnesota Twins are excited to play host to NDSU-Butler at Target Field," Twins President Dave St. Peter said. "The powerful tradition of NDSU football should create a special atmosphere within the ballpark. I have no doubt Bison Nation will be headquartered in the Twin Cities that weekend."
One week ago, Target Field announced it will host the Tommie-Johnnie football game on Sept. 23, 2017.
