McFeely: Forbes writer calls NDSU best college football team in country (sort of)

North Dakota State fans display their Bison pride during the NCAA FCS championship game at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas, on Saturday, Jan. 6, 2018. David Samson / The Forum writer Filip Bondy had some fun Tuesday trying to figure out the best college football team in the land, following Alabama’s overtime victory over Georgia in the Football Bowl Subdivision playoff championship game Monday night.
