MISSOULA - The Cat-Griz game on the grid iron is set for Saturday, and it's been a tale of two different seasons for the rivals this year, as Saturday is sure to be Montana's last game of 2012.
The Grizzlies enter the finale just 5-5, and 3-4 in the Big Sky Conference after a season filled with missed opportunities and blown leads.
But now with the chance to beat their arch rival, the game can be seen as the perfect opportunity to salvage part of the year, as well as maintain last season's bragging rights.
"Who wants it more, who's going to come out and play the meanest and fight for it the hardest? It'd be great to finish here leaving a legacy of beating the Cats. It'd mean a lot," Griz running back Caleb Walden said.
"It'd be really special. We lost it here two years ago and that not a great feeling. it's a letdown to everyone in this stadium and half the state. We really need to do this not only for us, but for Griz Nation and get us some momentum for next year," wide receiver Bryce Carver added.
The Cats can now claim a share of the conference title with a victory at Washington Grizzly Stadium on Saturday. Kickoff is set for 1:30 p.m.
