Grizzlies enter playoffs on a roll

missoulian.com — From a momentum standpoint, you might say Montana's football playoff opener against San Diego is a mismatch. The unranked Toreros will invade Washington-Grizzly Stadium on Saturday at 2 p.m. in hopes of erasing the memory of this past weekend's 34-3 home loss to Cal Poly. The Mustangs (7-5) were without their No.

Griz draw San Diego for playoff opener

Griz jump to 10-0 lead on Cats

The 13th-ranked Griz capitalized on their first possession with a 42-yard field goal by Wyoming transfer Daniel Sullivan.

Standing tall through it all

missoulian.com — No one has endured more to make his Montana football dream come true than Jordan Johnson. You could argue it's not even close. From a well-publicized jury trial to coaching changes, concussions, nagging ankle and back pain and a switch in offensive schemes, Johnson has endured.

Stakes high for 114th Brawl of the Wild

missoulian.com — Though technically impossible, Montana coach Mick Delaney's point was well taken when he opined, "you could be dead and still have energy this week." He was talking about the electricity surrounding Saturday's 114th Brawl of the Wild, pitting the 12th-ranked Montana State football team against the 13th-ranked Grizzlies at jam-packed Washington-Grizzly Stadium.

Griz can't afford a slow start against Cats

missoulian.com — Slow starts have been a sticky issue for the Montana football team lately. Playing against what might best be described as mediocre defenses the past two weeks, the 13th-ranked Grizzlies totaled three points in two first quarters.

Griz defense faced with tall task

They'll be looking to run up big numbers against a bend-but-don't-break Grizzly defense inside Washington-Grizzly Stadium in a 3:15 p.m.
