DOVER, Del.- The Delaware State Hornets will be getting national exposure Saturday when ESPN's College GameDay features their match up against North Dakota State University.

The show that draws in over two million viewers each Saturday typically highlights big schools that are known for their football program. This will be only the fourth time the show will give a non-major college location a chance to shine.

"This is a great honor to have Delaware State," said Athletic Director, Candy Young. " Just the visibility of Delaware State knowing that we are one of the four programs that will be a part of College GameDay. It's exciting."

The match up will not be an easy one. This is the first time the Hornets will go against the Bison. It's also the first time the Hornets have gone against a number one team since battling Southern Illinois in 2004. After coming off of two loses, coming home with a win will be a tough one.

"It's big because to have the opportunity to play that game and play the number one ranked team and the possibility of an upset," said Head Coach Kermit Blount. "The possibility to be able to go into Fargo and walk away with a win will be huge for our program and it'll be huge ego boost for our young men."

The show will air Saturday starting at 9 a.m. Kickoff for the Hornets against the Bison will begin at 3:37 p.m.
