When They Were Kings: The NDSU-UND Rivalry is a remarkable documentary that chronicles, through interviews and file footage highlights, the two great rivalries between the schools in their Division II days. The football rivalry raged between 1981 and 2003, and the women’s basketball rivalry played out during the 1990s when NDSU and UND combined to win eight out of nine national titles. The 90-minute documentary features interviews with all the key coaches and players and is an exciting tribute to the men and women who made the rivalry special.
