The Big Sky Conference got some big-time respect from the FCS (Football Championship Subdivision) selection committee with a total of four teams in the 24 team playoff field, and the University of Montana Grizzlies gaining the No. 8 seed.
The Montana Grizzlies lead the Big Sky Conference in turnover margin, a fact of which Weber State is now well aware, giving up six turnovers in their Saturday November 16 42-6 loss at Washington-Grizzly Stadium.
On a day when the normally unflappable Jordan Johnson threw three interceptions, Montana's defense and special teams came through with yet another heart-pounding win on the road, beating the University of South Dakota 31-27.
After busing over 1,200 miles all the way to Missoula for a big payday, the Division II Oklahoma Panhandle State Aggies won a little respect from Montana Grizzly football fans by scoring 14 points against a team ranked in the FCS top 10.
It was no contest. The Big Sky Conference has named University of Montana quarterback Jordan Johnson the ROOT Sports offensive player of the week for his performance on Saturday night, September 14, against the University of North Dakota.
Excitement is high for this University of Montana football season, especially when the very first game is against one of the most successful programs in the country, Appalachian State, on Saturday, August 31.
Newstalk Radio KGVO 1290 AM and 101.5 FM will again be the flagship stations for the Montana Grizzlies this football season, and the long-time play-by-play team of Mick Holien and Scott Gurnsey will be behind the microphone again.
After a long, hot summer, and an NCAA report in the rear-view mirror, the University of Montana football team prepares for the 2013 season, as players report on Sunday, with the first practice on Tuesday, August 6.
