BOZEMAN — After dropping three of their past four games, the Montana State Bobcats are looking to get back on their feet at home on Saturday.

In Matt Miller’s first appearance as head play caller, the Bobcats fell 24-17 to Idaho State last Saturday. Now, the team must pick up the pieces ahead of Cal Poly in Bobcat Stadium and control what head coach Jeff Choate called “missed opportunities.”

“You have to be honest and look at, ‘Hey, here’s what we did well, here’s what we didn’t do well, here’s who we are, here’s where we aren’t,'” Choate said in his weekly press conference on Monday. “And then you have to hit the reset button and say, ‘Hey, here’s the next challenge. Here’s the next opportunity you have.’

“Positive people don’t dwell on negative things. You have to look at them from an honest perspective, look at the mistakes you made, and then you have to be able to say, ‘OK, here’s where we’re going now.'”

The Bobcats take on Cal Poly on Saturday at 2 p.m. in Bobcat Stadium.
