MISSOULA — We’re a little less than a month away from Cat-Griz football, but Tuesday evening fans can get their Cat-Griz fix in Bozeman. The Montana Grizzlies and Montana State Bobcats will square off for their second and final regular-season contest in 2019.
The Cats took the first contest in Missoula, sweeping UM 3-0. Montana State comes into the game with the better record in conference play, 6-4, but the 2-8 Griz are fresh off a win and are looking to keep it going on Tuesday night.
Montana head coach Allison Lawrence says the key to Montana coming away with a win is to just relax and not overthink the rivalry game.
"To go in and feel free and loose and calm I think is the key for us. Rather than to be sort of nervous about that. They have their band going and their crowd, so it feels like a lot of energy is pushing up against you, and we just need to be resilient and know that the six people on the court, as long as we look each other in the eyes and support each other and go from there, then we have all the energy we need," said Lawrence.
The Cats and Griz are scheduled to begin at 7:00 p.m.
