You Will Not Believe This Montana Grizzly Football Score
They are often referred to "money" or "payday" games. A smaller football program travels to a college powerhouse and pads the school's bank account.
Is the expectation to win a game like that? Sure, you want to believe you can. But history will tell you it's rare when a Football Championship Subdivision team knocks off a Top-20 Football Bowl Subdivision team. How rare? It had happened five times in college football history.
Until tonight. After giving up a long touchdown drive on the first possession of the game, the Montana Grizzlies used a dominant performance from their defensive unit, which included three interceptions, key quarterback sacks and 4th-down stops, to stymie the Washington Huskies in Seattle by a final score of 13-7.
Montana's offense did struggle most of the game, but came up with a few big plays when they were needed and managed enough yards and points against a Washington defense that is considered one of the best in the Pac 12 Conference this season.
And that, Griz Nation, is how you start a season! We can't wait to see all of you for the home opener next Saturday, September 11, against Western Illinois. Scott Gurnsey and I will be live at the Grizzly Scholarship Association tailgate site doing the live pregame show starting at 4:00 p.m. on the Grizzly Radio Network.
