I don't want summer to end, but the lure of Montana Grizzly football games gets stronger once practice gets underway.

The Griz are now officially in fall camp and practice mode for 2019. If you want to get a glimpse of this year's team, the practice schedule officially got underway today (Tuesday) and features 20 practices, most of which are open to the public, and at several different venues.There is no fall scrimmage game this year.
