Griz Ready for Frigid Temps, Coastal Resorting to Chicken Broth?

Montana has scored a lot of touchdowns and won a lot of games at Washington-Grizzly Stadium, 179 to be exact. And that's without record cold temperatures in their corner.

But on Saturday in Missoula it will be one of the coldest, if not the coldest game ever at Wa-Griz with the expected high to be 9 degrees and the low in the negative 6 degree range. The weather topic has come up a lot this week and Griz head coach Mick Delaney said in his presser on Tuesday that he doesn't really expect it to be an advantage for either team. But his players, especially the big guys in the trenches, think differently.

"I say bring it on, let the temperature keep dropping. I hope the wind chill puts us below zero. Because that's fun, when we look back on our careers that game in early December, oh remember that? Against that Carolina team when it was freezing cold but when we went out there and did this and that. I think it's just fun to get a team, especially from a different climate up here, give them the classic Montana weather, the classic Montana football and just challenge them to beat us in our own element," said Alex Bienemann, Griz Senior Tackle.

The high today in Conway, South Carolina was 79 degrees. So, Coastal Carolina is concerned about the cold weather. So much so, they arrived in Missoula today which is a day earlier then planned to help the players acclimate. Their head coach, Joe Moglia, says he thinks it would take his players bodies 6 weeks to really get used to the weather but the 'Chants' only have 2 days, so they'll do what they can to be ready come game time.

"We want to do layered clothing. We're looking at warmers, we're looking at different things like that, skull caps, etc. Some skin cream you can use that kind of helps along those lines. We're going to use fleece jackets for the guys, we're looking at all of those things. We're going to have heaters on the sideline. We would think about, for example, instead of having just water and Gatorade, which we'll have, we might very well have something like chicken broth."

Montana will host Coastal Carolina at 12pm noon.  The game will be aired on ESPN3.
