Forty-eight former North Dakota State University football players have been selected to the All-Fargodome Team representing the school's Division I and Division II eras.

Fan voting on Facebook.com/NDBison throughout the month of June picked the two 24-man teams. Separate polls were published by position with fans ranking their selections in order for each position.

The All-Fargodome Team is part of NDSU's celebration of the 25th season of football in the Fargodome, which has been the home to Bison football since 1993.

This month, there will be 25 giveaways in 25 days with chances for fans to win Bison sideline apparel, exclusive football memorabilia, and other items from NDSU Athletics.
