As we approach the big Cat/Griz Game this weekend, it's the Bobcats that hold a higher ranking. But will these rankings mean anything when the players leave it all on the Gridiron?

Most likely not, because the blood runs much deeper than mere numbers in this rivalry. One thing is for sure—the game will live up to the rivalry right from the opening kickoff and we wouldn't miss it for the world.

The Bobcats are having a Pep Rally this Thursday at 6:30 on the intersection of Wilson and Main, so come by and bring your Cat pride to get the team ready for the game. You can listen to the game on our radio station this Saturday, the Home of the Bobcats, XL Country.

[No. 8] Montana State (8-2), which received one first-place vote... Montana (7-3) climbed two spots to No. 11.

The Grizzlies host rival Montana State on Saturday in one of the week's bigger games, perhaps needing a win to continue its record run of 17 straight FCS playoff bids.
