Rivalries & Top Games to Attend

Dakota Marker

Rival Team: North Dakota State Bisons

The South Dakota State Jackrabbits and North Dakota State Bisons play each year for the Dakota Marker. The two teams first met in 1903, and since then they have developed a long running rivalry that became an annual fixture in 1919. In 2004, the Dakota Marker trophy was added to the rivalry, and today the winner of the SDSU-NDSU game takes home bragging rights as well as the trophy. The Bison may lead the all-time series 60-41-5, but you won’t want to miss it as the Jackrabbits try to draw nearer when these two meet this year.
