Top ranked North Dakota State has won five straight FCS titles including two under Klieman.

The Bison enter Saturday's matchup with Iowa-- two and oh with both wins in overtime against top ten FCS opponents.

Klieman says he has great respect for coach Kirk Ferentz and the Iowa Hawkeye football program having grown up in the state.

Klieman says this may be the toughest challenge the Bison has faced since he has been at North Dakota State.

NDSU Head Coach Chris Klieman said, "We are going into a Big Ten Game that is not a spread Big Ten offense. It is an under center--eliminate the quarterback run game. You are not getting all the things other teams have shown you from a quarterback run game. We are going to lineup and run right at you and knock you off the football and can you hold up. And the first two opponents they've played have not held up and so that is alarming to us because they were pretty good teams that could not hold so how are we going to hold up with our front seven."

Kick off is 11 a.m. Saturday from Kinnick Stadium.
