THEY HAVE DONE IT!  The Montana State Bobcat Football team is officially ranked #1 in the country for the 2011 football standings for the first time in the program's history. And with Cat/Griz coming this weekend - the timing couldn't be more perfect!!!

"This is a tremendous honor for the Montana State football program, our loyal and passionate fans, and our incredibly supportive administration," said Bobcats head coach Rob Ash, whose team will earn an outright Big Sky title by winning Saturday or will be the co-champion with Montana if it loses to the Grizzlies.

On Saturday, the Bobcats will host rival the University of Montana in Bozeman, with the winner earning the Big Sky's automatic bid to the FCS playoffs. The loser is expected to be in the 20-team field as an at-large selection.
