The NDSCS Football team will join the Minnesota College Athletic Conference (MCAC) beginning in the fall of 2014.
NDSCS has been a member of the Midwest Football Conference since 2005, but decided to make a change after a number of teams announced they were departing from the MCAC.
Joining the MCAC will allow the NDSCS football tradition to continue and will bring value to the College and Wildcat fans alike, while also increasing competition with quality teams located closer to the Wahpeton community.
In addition to this new conference affiliation, the NDSCS football stadium is currently undergoing a $1.35 million renovation to its locker rooms, concession stand and store. The renovation will be complete just in time to kick-off the 2014 football season.
“We are very committed to our tradition and our history of football at NDSCS, and we are excited to showcase our new conference and new facilities in the fall of 2014,” said NDSCS Athletic Director Stu Engen.
All other NDSCS sports teams will maintain their current conference affiliations.
Lets go Wildcats!
