MINNEAPOLIS, April 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Jostens, the leading national custom jewelry designer and producer, has partnered with North Dakota State University (NDSU) to create the Bison Football team's 2015 FCS Championship ring as well as a collection of championship jewelry for its fans.
The Bison are the first Division I football team to ever win four straight national titles, and this will be the fourth time NDSU and Jostens have teamed up to produce the team's FCS National Championship rings.
On April 25, 2015, the championship ring will be presented to players and coaches during the NDSU Green & Gold Spring Game held at Gate City Bank Field at the Fargodome. Each custom ring will honor and celebrate the team's remarkable victory with the team's logo and four marquis stones on top representing the team's four FCS Championships. One side of the championship ring has the player's last name, position and jersey number. The other side says 4PEAT to pay homage to their championship record and the 2015 Division I Championship logo. The inside of the ring has all 12 Bison Football Championship years engraved.
"Jostens is thrilled to continue our collaboration with NDSU to create a FCS Championship ring that celebrates a remarkable season and significant championship victory," said Chris Poitras, vice president, Jostens. "Each beautiful piece was meticulously handcrafted to visually tell the story of a historic season for the NDSU Bison."
"It was a pleasure to once again partner with Jostens to design and create a spectacular 2015 FCS Championship ring and fan collection," said Brian Gordon, director of football operations, NDSU.

We are excited to present the rings to our team members and unveil the championship collection for our fans."
