    Never underestimate a Grizzly! Montana Griz Football defeated the #20 UW Huskies tonight in what was just the sixth FCS win over a ranked FBS opponent in FCS history. Final score: 13-7. Welcome back to Grizzly football! #GoGriz

    #7 ranked Iowa State almost lost to FCS team Northern Iowa yesterday as well.

      Don't agree with the logic . Nothing to win and everything to lose by playing local teams. No real big reason we don't play a few of the locals. Anyone, anywhere, anytime? <- what happened to that??

          Because it's their Super Bowl. If we play the 250th ranked EWU team and they play out of their minds, we come out flat, we could be in the same boat.

              I couldn't agree with you more doc.....it is exactly why we should play local teams.....if Eastern beat Gonzaga in a early non conference game it would a good thing for Eastern and for Gonzaga and for the Community....probably mean a couple hundred thousand in local economic activity .just my opinion of course....

                - the thread title implies this is why we should not play local small colleges, yet to keep with the analogy the huskies had played montana before 18 times and had never lost.
                - heck i'd sign the eagles up for an 20 year scheduling contract if i knew going in we'd likely win 18 or 19 of the games.

                - zags always play the small college teams, everyone does, so indeed why not ewu, idaho or montana. there is no greater risk of a loss there than western michigan or s.w. louisiana or is it s.e. louisiana? or is it n.e.....

                  The Griz beat the Huskies before...in 1920. This is something that happens like clockwork. Once a century.

                    Montana (and EWU) plays D-1 in hoops and not in a lower (FCS type, D2, D3) division. It is an apples and oranges comparison to football.

                      Erase the classifications. We still should play large and small. One might say since we don’t play football the comparison doesn’t matter. We should play big and small schools in this missed comparison

                        Obviously I’m pretty excited about the Griz
                        Montana State lost in the final seconds to Wyoming also.
                        Sports media is only talking about how poorly the Huskies played, no mention of how well Montana may have played. No respect!
                        Go Griz!!
                        One of the greatest stories in basketball history...Gonzaga!

                          dont play against a local unranked team or you might lose like the Huskies just did?
                          now take the word 'local' out of that sentence.
                          you should get the same thing, we are a national brand, any loss to a same-ranked low
                          (same as EWU or WSU) makes nat'l headlines.
                          When its local it gets alot more money flowing, locally (just on GU side alone)
