It's never too early to get hyped about Griz Football, and the Grizzlies on the gridiron are ramping the hype meter up this week by making the headlines.

First, Junior Wide Out/Punt Returner Junior Bergen was named to the Athlon Preseason FCS All-America Team (congrats Junior). Then, it was announced that Montana/Idaho's  "Battle for the Little Brown Stein" game will air on ESPN. It's just one of two Big Sky Conference games slated to air nationally according to the Big Sky Conference offices. Finally, the University's Sports Information Department unveiled the 2023 Promotional Schedule.

If you need help planning which games you're attending, here's the 2023 Montana Football Promotions Schedule.

September 16 VS Ferris State - Black Out

One of my favorites. 30 thousand people show up in solidarity wearing nothing but darkness to intimidate the opponent. Plus, it looks really cool.

A chance to welcome back all the Griz alumni and give homage to the Native American culture that's so prevalent in Montana.
