Not What He Hoped For
Eagles QB Carson Wentz, a former North Dakota State standout, was playing close to home. “It’s cool knowing there’s a lot of support out there, friends and family, a lot of NDSU fans in the area,” he said. “I wish I could have given them a better show today … but it’s just special being this close to home and playing in front of a lot of people that I grew up knowing and caring about.”
