GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) — University of North Dakota officials say the team has sold its most season tickets for football in a decade.
The school had orders for 4,455 season tickets by the middle of the day Thursday. It sold 4,359 of them a year ago.
The team held a special "30 minutes or less" promotion Wednesday, when players and coaches were required to deliver season tickets to buyers in less than half an hour, or the tickets were free. All of the deliveries beat the clock.
The school sold 57 tickets during the promotion.
The home schedule has Valparaiso on Aug. 29, South Dakota State on Sept. 7, Montana on Sept. 14, Montana State on Sept. 28, Eastern Washington on Oct. 12, Sacramento State on Oct. 19, and Northern Colorado on Nov. 9.
