Griz Offense Rolling into Brawl of the Wild

Posted: Updated:

Montana beat Eastern Washington last week 57-16….yes 57-16. The Griz expected to win but not by that much.

"Well it was an important win regardless but it was a statement on the national scene that now we are healthy and we belong in the playoffs and we have a football team that can play with anybody," said Griz Head Coach Bob Stitt.

That Eastern win sets up a showdown in the Brawl of the Wild where if the grid win their in the playoffs but the Griz say none of that matters in a rivalry game.

"If we were 0-10 we would have the same fire under our belts right now and it's important this week that we don't get too excited and too hyped up about the game because they have a little less to play for than we do," said Griz CB Nate Harris.

The Cats are eliminated from playoff contention so you could expect they will be making this game their season.

"It's the game that you have to win and you do everything you can this week and on Saturday to make sure you come out of it with a victory," said Griz Senior LB Connor Lebsock.

Whether you are from Montana or from California like Nate Harris, you learn you're either a Griz or a Cat and there's no liking the other side.

"Now going into my fifth year I really don't like those guys at all. i feel like I have developed a hatred that the guys who grew up in Montana have," said Harris.

The Griz have faced their fair share of injuries this season but are coming around both physically and mentally.

We have had the rugged pulled out from underneath us multiple times and we knew that would make us stronger and we would be able to deal with it down the stretch and we have been able to do that," said Stitt.
