The number 1 ranked UMD Buldogs will be taking on the number 2 ranked MSU Mavericks in the season opener and will air on ESPN3 as it's "National Game of the Week" on September 3rd.

The Bulldogs are coming into the season with a 19 game regular season winning streak, the third longest of it's kind and only four games off the team's record. The game will be held at Mankato's Blakeslee Stadium where the Bulldogs lost the playoff quarter final last year.

Hopefully the Bulldogs can pull off the big win and continue their winning streak. Kickoff is scheduled for 6pm on September 3rd and it should be a great game. Let me know in the comments below what you think of an UMD game airing on ESPN3.
