It's perfect timing that our University of Montana Griz Football team kick off their season this week and HERO Sports releases the Best College Football Teams by State.

If you know anything about the history between the Grizzlies and Bobcats, it's not a shock that HERO Sports chose the Griz as the best College Football Team in Montana.

Here is what they wrote about our Griz Football team:

Montana football is the biggest thing going in the state. A game at Washington-Grizzly Stadium isn't just the biggest FCS event or college football event in the state -- it's the biggest athletic spectacle in Big Sky country. Period.

The Grizzlies are a little removed from the halcyon days of the mid to late 2000s, when they won three National Championships in six years, but they're still one of the premier teams in the FCS -- as three playoff appearances in five seasons is nothing to shake a stick at.

I love knowing that people from around the country know that Montana is Griz Country, GO GRIZ!
