UND football at the Big Sky Kickoff

Football season is right around the corner, and for the Big Sky Conference, that means it’s time for the annual media day and kickoff event. New UND head coach Bubba Schweigert and senior Baylee Carr attended the event.

UND football media relations director has posted lots of great stuff from the Big Sky Kickoff on UNDsports.com.

Carr on this season: “There is a lot of excitement with the new staff and that feeling is going to be there anytime you have something new. I’ve been impressed with the new guys that have arrived in town already and their willingness to work and do the extra work on their own. I’m excited to see what we can do during fall camp.”
