ABERDEEN, S.D. - Northern State University football’s Sept. 7 season opener against Wayne State was the highest-attended NSIC game played in 2013, as 6,132 fans attended the Wolves’ 29-27 triple overtime victory.
The crowd was Northern’s highest since 6,642 attended 2012’s Gypsy Day victory over Minot State University. NSU averaged more than 3,200 fans per game this season.
“We have the best fans in the country, and their loyal support helps ensure our athletic events have an electric atmosphere, which is very important for our student-athlete experience,” said NSU Athletic Director Josh Moon.
The second-highest attended game in the NSIC was the Sept. 21 contest between then No. 2-anked Minnesota State University and seventh-ranked University of Minnesota Duluth, as a crowd of 5,723 watched MSU’s 21-17 win.
