Griz Prep Cal Poly

Posted: Updated:

For the second week in a row the Griz will face a team that is undefeated in conference play.  Cal Poly, who finished tied atop the Big Sky rankings last season, rolls their triple option offense into Missoula to battle the Griz.

"It's just discipline if you have the quarterback you have to take the quarterback, if you have the pitch you have to take the pitch and it's just one on one is what it amounts to.  Whoever works the hardest and uses their technique the best is mostly likely to come out successful in a game like this and you can't guess you have to be right on to what your responsibilities are every time the ball is snapped," said Head Coach Mick Delaney.

The Mustangs run the ball over 52 times per game for a clip of 5.4 yards per carry.  Montana gives up only 3.5 per tote so something will give on Saturday.

"Well one thing I know about the triple option as a corner is that we don't get many passes.  It's a big running game and we have to put our big boy pads on and come up and make some tackles and play assignment football," said Griz Corner Joshua Dennard.

And this week's game is the pink game as Montana will wear pink with their uniforms in support of breast cancer awareness month.

"That's a real special deal because I would bet that there's not one person on this team or coach that hasn't been affected in one way shape or form by cancer whether it's breast cancer or something else. And people respect the University of Montana football so if we can support something like that I think it's great.
