With less than a month until they kick-off their first season in two years, all eyes are on the University of Minnesota Duluth football team.

The Bulldogs were picked to finish first in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC) North preseason coaches poll.

Additionally, senior quarterback John Larson was named the NSIC North’s Preseason Offensive Player of the Year.

In 2019, he led the team throwing 1,527 yards and 19 passing touchdowns.

UMD will open their 2021 schedule at Upper Iowa University on September 2nd .
