Buffalo Wild Wings will be sponsoring the false start counter rewarding fans with free wings after two false starts.

The familiar Petro Serve USA T-Shirt Toss will get an upgrade with a Gatling T-shirt gun launching 50 shirts at a time into the Fargodome crowd. T-shirts are a limited edition only available to fans on game day.

Several regular-season home games will include premium promotional giveaways, including custom LED foam sticks provided by Gate City Bank for homecoming versus Youngstown State.

A number of visual elements have also been added to the Bison Game Day experience.

Graphics have been updated for the videoboards, which will feature new promotions, animations and videos created by NDSU’s award-winning multimedia department. And, the popular Bison pre-game introduction will be enhanced with a light show from two custom light towers positioned near the team’s entrance.

Thunder Alley will add two food trucks, Twisted Spork and Lupe’s Tacos, where fans who don’t have their own tailgating spot can purchase food, and the Bison Corral beer garden will be open to the public featuring a 16-foot by 9-foot mobile video board showing the WDAY Bison GameDay pregame show and other college football games and video content.
