If you plan to attend next Saturday's big football game in Grand Forks, you might want to reserve your hotel room as soon as possible.  At the time of this article, hotel rooms are extremely scarce in Grand Forks.  Most of the entire cities motels and hotels are completely booked.

I took some time this morning to reach out to 10 different motels/hotels in Grand Forks and only one that I spoke to had a room.  That was Country Inn and Suites and be prepared to pay a premium rate.  Canad Inns Destination Center, Staybridge Suites, Super 8 by Wyndham, Days Inn, AmericInn by Wyndham, all the same story.  No room at the inn.

People from all over the state will be flocking to Grand Forks to watch the University of North Dakota play their very first home game against North Dakota State University in many, many years.  In fact, it was 2003 the last time the Bison were in Grand Forks to play a football game.  The Thundering Herd lost that game 28-21 in overtime, according to Go Bison.  Since then, the teams have only faced each other three times in 2015, 2019, and 2020 with North Dakota State winning all of the games in convincing fashion.

Both North Dakota and North Dakota state have byes this weekend.  North Dakota is currently ranked 10th in the latest FCS poll, the Bison are ranked 5th.  The Fighting Hawks are 2-1 on the season, while North Dakota State is 3-0.  Should be a whale of a game.  Best of luck at finding a place to stay.
