“College GameDay” always likes to go to the biggest matchups of the week to preview Saturday’s college football slate. This week, they’re headed to one of the oldest rivalries in the sport.
ESPN is headed to Bozeman, Montana, to preview the Brawl of the Wild between Montana and Montana State. The game will be played at Montana State in Bobcat Stadium.
The Grizzlies currently hold the Great Divide Trophy after winning the game last year and snapping Montana State’s four-game winning streak. Montana holds the all-time advantage at 73-41-5.
This will be the 121st edition of the rivalry, which began in 1897. It is the 31st-oldest rivalry in Division I and the fourth-oldest among FCS teams.
