FARGO, N.D. (AP) — U.S. Sen. John Hoeven says President Donald Trump has invited the national champion North Dakota State football team to the White House.

Hoeven says Trump extended the invitation after the two of them talked about the Bison winning their seventh Football Championship Subdivision title in the last eight years. The Bison defeated Eastern Washington in January’s title game in Frisco, Texas.

Hoeven says North Dakota State’s winning history makes for a fitting visit and he will work with the president to coordinate details.
