BILLINGS — Saturday's anticipated matchup between FCS powers Montana State and South Dakota State can be seen statewide on the Montana Television Network.

Kickoff between No. 3 MSU (1-0) and No. 1 SDSU (1-0) from Dana J. Dykhouse Stadium in Brookings, S.D., is scheduled for 5 p.m. Mountain time. The game will be televised on local CBS stations.

It is a rematch of an FCS playoff semifinal game from last December 17 which South Dakota State beat MSU 39-19 at home in freezing temperatures. The Jackrabbits went on to win the national championship with a 45-21 victory over Missouri Valley Football Conference rival North Dakota State on Jan. 8 in Frisco, Texas.

The Bobcats and Jackrabbits also squared off in the semifinals in 2021 in Bozeman, a game MSU won 31-17 to advance to the national championship game for the first time since 1984.
