President Donald Trump has invited the NDSU Bison football team to be honored at the White House. 

According to Senator John Hoeven’s office, following the team’s 7th FCS National title in eight years he and the President discussed bringing the team to the White House and honoring them.

Today, President Trump extended the invitation. 

Hoeven says his office is working with NDSU President Dean Bresciana in order to coordinate the visit. 

“The NDSU Bison have won seven of the last eight FCS national football titles,” said Hoeven. “After a meeting with the President, I spoke with him about the Bison’s championship win. We appreciate him extending the invitation for the team to visit the White House. Historically, one of the great honors that comes along with winning a sports championship is to receive an invitation from the President to visit the White House. With NDSU’s history of excellence, it is only fitting that they be honored at the White House and we look forward to working with the President to coordinate the visit.”
