BOZEMAN — The 119th edition of the Cat-Griz rivalry football game is now just three days away.
If you watched the Montana State Bobcats' recent game against UC Davis this past Saturday, then you saw the return of running back Isaiah Ifanse make an immediate impact on the game. The sophomore ran for 77 yards and a touchdown in the Cats' 27-17 win.
While it's good to have his presence in the backfield, it's also right to point out the sheer number of weapons MSU boasts on offense. Having as many offensive weapons healthy as possible for Saturday's game will be significant for the Bobcats as they go up against the highly talented Montana defense.
“It's good having Isaiah back. I know he was dealing with something throughout this year, and it’s looking good. He’s healthy and whatnot," said senior wideout Kevin Kassis. "And then having a guy like Travis (Jonsen), he could pretty much do whatever. I mean, I wouldn’t want to prepare for him. But, yeah, we’re excited. We got a bunch of guys who can make plays for us, too.”
“I think with Isaiah back, obviously that opens up things," said senior wide receiver Travis Jonsen. "But Logan Jones, Shane Perry, and Lane (Sumner) do just as good.”
Kickoff for the 119th Cat-Griz game is set for noon on Saturday.
