Broadcast Changes to UC Davis vs. Griz Football Game

Posted: Updated:

MAX MEDIA OF MONTANA's broadcast of Saturday's Big Sky Conference game between the Montana Grizzlies and the UC Davis Aggies will be carried on ROOT SPORTS as well as available on smartphones and tablets via the free app Syncbak, the league announced on Thursday.

The game is being produced by Max Media, which was originally scheduled to televise the game throughout the state of Montana. Due to a conflict with Major League Baseball playoffs on the Max Media Fox affiliates, the networks are unable to air the football game. MAX MEDIA has contracted with ROOT SPORTS to show Max Media's production. The game will still air live on KULR-8, Max Media's NBC affiliate in Billings.

Coverage will begin at 5 p.m. Mountain, 4 p.m. Pacific from Aggie Stadium in Davis, Calif. Chris Byers will handle the play-by-play duties with Grady Bennett serving as color commentator. Anna Cole will be the sideline reporter.

The game will be televised live on ROOT SPORTS in Montana, northern Idaho, and eastern Washington.

Saturday's Max Media production will also be available in HD quality on Syncbak, a free app available on smartphones and tablets. Go to the app store and download the Syncbak app and a MONTANA SPORTS NETWORK icon will be available on your device on game day.

The game will also be available for free on WatchBigSky.com.
