Montana coasted into the national semi-finals in the Football Championship Subdivision with a 51-0 quarter final win over Stephen F. Austin on Saturday in Missoula.
The Lumberjacks of SFA have the number 1 offense in the FCS but never got untracked. The cold weather took its toll, with TEN Lumberjack turnovers.
Next up for the Grizzlies will be hosting Appalachian State in the national semi-final. The game will be on Saturday afternoon, Dec 12, at 2 pm MST. ESPN will broadcast nationally. Because of the 2 pm kickoff and the early sunset in Montana, they will set up lights at Washington-Grizzly Stadium for the game. This has been done only once before, and it worked out okay. Takes a lot of work and coordination and electricity, of course.
Congratulation to the Montana Grizzlies, who have scored 91 straight points over the past two games while not giving up any scores at all. (That includes the 40 unanswered points last week against South Dakota State.
