    Road Construction Dominates Campus

    Swathes of campus road are inaccessible to motorists and pedestrians, and aging infrastructure is to blame. An army of orange cones redirected traffic to detour routes as construction workers replaced old water and sewer pipelines.

The No. 1-ranked Bison (7-0, 3-0 Missouri Valley Football Conference) have now won 31-straight […]
