Week 1 college football sees the Grizzlies and Huskies meet at Husky Stadium.
The Montana Grizzlies will open the 2021 NCAA football season with a tough matchup against the Pac-12’s Washington Huskies on Saturday. We officially have no lines on the game being that the Griz are coming out of the Big Sky Conference and would likely be heavy underdogs for this affair.
The Huskies are certainly not going to gain much from a beat down of a Big Sky program, but these two seem to like opening the season together. Remember when they first met in 1920?
Yeah, the Griz TOOK DOWN THE HUSKIES that day, but um, that is about all the glory the Griz have seen in this long-time series. Washington is 17 – 0 – 1 in the last 18 games since that 1920 outing and that streak will likely go on a little longer after Saturday’s game is said and done.
Regardless, they play football and we watch what happens with anticipation of a big upset, right? Who doesn’t want to see a good ole Power-5 team get beat up by a little ole Big Sky team? LoL
Me? Oh, I graduated from college in Montana so I know a thing or two about the Griz. My first Cat – Griz game was in 1989 in Missoula and I am certainly a Griz fan, make no mistake. So, let’s see what we got here…
There are no available betting lines for this Big Sky vs. Pac 12 matchup.
Well, it is what it is, and we all know that the prospects of this being a tight game are slim but this is why they play the game!
Ahh man, did you see Coach Hauck’s Show this week and the surroundings? Yeah, HERE… Look at this view!
Sorry .. #GOGRIZ! I mean, you either know what that place is like, or you don’t and that’s all I will say about it.
But, there is a football game to be played and Coach Bobby Hauck certainly understands why Washington is on the schedule as often as possible. Coach is from Missoula, loves his team, and he loves teaching so there is no one better to lead the Griz.
Hauck was the DB/DL coach at Montana when I was at my first Cat Griz game in 1989. That’s how long this dude has been coaching football, so we all know what value he holds in the community. Coach is also well aware of the 63 – 7 loss the last time these two met and all he really had to say at his presser about it was, “We just need to work on closing that gap a little bit”.
Hmm hmm, and that about covers it LoL
So, it sounds like Montana will get destroyed again, right? Hold on now, not so fast my friend!
Hauck’s kid Robby? STUD! The dude has amassed 236 tackles and has never missed even a snap in his career. The All-Big Sky Conference award will be his as long as he stays healthy, of course. The Junior safety will be looking to take down anything in sight that is moving with a ball!
Have you heard of Griz linebacker Jace Lewis? Oh, no? Oh, I am sorry, you should have by now because he was the 2020 Big Sky Preseason Defensive Player of the Year! How you doin’? Can I just say that he will be wearing the #37 sweater this season? Do you get it? Yeah, KNOW YOUR GRIZ HISTORY, BABY!
Malik Flowers is a kick returning animal, and he gets one ounce of space just watch my man scoot! Another kid that can fly and he only needs about 500 return yards to be the Griz all-time leader in kick return yardage for his career.
Huskies head coach Jimmy Lake obviously sees this game in an entirely different light. Montana on the schedule might almost feel like a scrimmage to the Huskies program and a tool to get ready for the real season ahead.
At the same token, this team only got to play 4 totals games in 2020 but there is a lot to look forward to in 2021. Lake really wanted to always leave it clear that Dylan Morris was the starting QB at UDub. Coach Lake always wanted to build on Morris’ ability to keep a team positive and morale high. Coach Lake was quoted at the AP saying, “The guys gravitate toward him because they know how much work he puts into it. They know that it means a lot to him. They see the preparation that he goes through.”
Well, the pollsters agree to an extent because we all see the #20 ranking attached to the Huskies going into this season. Morris was thrust into the starters slot after Covid riddled the locker room, but he managed to go 3 – 1 in the 4 games played in 2020. Ever since he has kept his composure and remained focused to keep his job and he has the coach’s full support. Even with some new names coming in like Brock Huard’s son Sam he has maintained a cool head.
Huard obviously has the Husky roots so many just assumed he could possibly take over this season.
The Huskies arguably have one of the best defensive backfields in the conference and in all honesty, the Husky schedule shapes up nicely for a highly successful campaign. Their team total in 9 at most major sites carrying the prop and we can only surmise that they will find those 9 wins, at least.
