The University of North Dakota will make what it calls a "major announcement" regarding conference affiliation on Monday. UND is expected to announce it will join the BIg Sky Conference.

UND will hold a news conference at 3:00 p.m. in the lobby of the Betty Engelstad Sioux Center. The public is invited.

On Friday, UND announced it had canceled a scheduled on-campus visit by Summit League officials. That visit was to take place Monday and Tuesday.

The Big Sky Conference includes football, which the Summit League does not.

UND is currently a member of the Great West Conference.
