DILLON – With just three games remaining in the regular season, the Montana Western Bulldogs have a chance to do something the football program hasn’t accomplished since 2004. A win over Rocky Mountain College on Saturday would give the Bulldogs at least a share of the Frontier Conference title.
The Bulldogs beat the Battlin’ Bears at home back in September, 24-21, but they know things will be different this time around since they’ll be on the road in Billings on Saturday. Being as successful as the Bulldogs have been all season long doesn’t require them to change anything major. Rather, it gives them a chance to fix the little things.
“I think execution, that’s really been our mantra,” head coach Ryan Nourse said. “We’ve had to improve on each and every week this entire year. Last week, we had a lot of mistakes and execution errors that we thought we had put behind us, but obviously we haven’t yet. We’ve got to get better this week and motivate our players.”
