MISSOULA – The Montana State University Bobcats football team will square off against the University of Montana Grizzlies on Saturday in one of the most iconic rivalries in the West. The Bobcats will travel to Washington-Grizzly stadium in Missoula to defend their four-year winning streak.
For the second straight Brawl of the Wild, both teams are ranked in the FCS Top 10, with Montana sitting at No. 7 and Montana State at No. 3. At the 2019 matchup, Montana ranked No. 3 and Montana State No. 8, but the Bobcats still came out on top in the Brawl, beating the Grizzlies mercilessly, 48-14.
Beginning in 1897, the rivalry is the 31st oldest among active rivalries in the NCAA Division I and of those is the 11th oldest west of the Mississippi River.
