The Griz are rolling this season, with three wins under their belt and currently sharing the top spot in the Big Sky Conference with Weber State, also 3-0. The cross-state rival Bobcats, who will host this year's Brawl of The Wild game, were blown out by Oregon State on Saturday September 17th losing by 40 points and sit with a 2-1 record.

The Griz have now outscored their opponents 120-21, thanks in no small part to their "bend but don't break" defense and Big Sky Conference Defensive Player Of The Week Patrick O'Connell, who was honored with the title for the second time in his career.

What's Next For The Griz

The Portland State Vikings shouldn't be taken lightly by our boys, but the numbers paint a picture of victory: Portland State is winless so far this year. Coming off their early bye week, the Vikings have found the end zone just twice against two opponents. They were blown out by the Washington Huskies in week two 52-6.

The Griz have fared well against Portland State in the past; last year we won soundly at home 48-7. Montana racked up a victory in 2020 as well, scoring 45 points. In fact, the Vikings haven't won a football game since October of 2019 (most of their 2020 season was cancelled as well as all of their 2021 season, save the loss to the Griz)
