After adding a game against Mississippi Valley State on September 2nd, the North Dakota State Bison's 2017 football schedule is complete.

The Bison will open their 2017 campaign against the Devils of Mississippi Valley State at the FargoDome.

The following week, they'll head to Washington, where they'll face Eastern Washington. That game was originally scheduled for September 16th, but has since been moved up to September 9th, according to GoBison.com.

The Bison's first Missouri Valley Football Conference game of the season will be their homecoming game against Missouri State on September 30th.

Here's the Bison's complete 2017 football schedule, courtesy of GoBison.com:
