That’s right. The BSU men’s hockey team is 4-0-0 for the first time since 2005-06, which gave pollsters…

FOOTBALL: Notes From Bemidji State Press Conference (Concordia Pregame)

Got a lot of good reaction and quotes from the Bemidji State football team following their 34-27 comeback shocker against Winona State last Thursday.

Shields helped engineer BSU’s comeback that night in Winona, coming into the game in the…

But Friday I practiced my hockey photo skills for the first time at the Sanford Center for the women’s Green and White scrimmage. I almost forgot football existed. But now that deadline is over and…
