A huge offensive fireworks display on offense and three big defensive plays late in the game spelled success for the Griz.

The Montana offense racked up over 500 yards of total offense and a sack, a pass breakup and an interception, all on fourth down in Montana territory kept the South Dakota offense frustrated and led to a 31-17 victory in Vermillion, South Dakota.

The Griz move to 1-0 and on their way home to get ready for a night game against a very good North Alabama team.
