Bison Glory Days: Tony Satter remembers the difficult 1987 season, followed by perfection 1988

Loading the player...

Former North Dakota State star running back Tony Satter joins Bison Glory Days podcast host Mike McFeely to talk about the 1987 and 1988 seasons, when NDSU followed an underachieving season (1987) with a perfect national championship season (1988).

The parallels are far from perfect because NDSU's 2020/21 was a marred spring season thrown together to salvage a year for FCS, but could Bison fans see a repeat of the old days this fall? 

Satter also chats about his freshman season of 1987 from a personal standpoint, comments on NDSU's upcoming season, gives an opinion about the Bison moving up to FBS ... and a lot more.
