Glacier Wolfpack Football
MISSOULA, Mont. -

In this week’s newest class 'AA' poll, the top three spots haven't changed at all.  It's Bozeman followed by both Helena schools, all of those teams are still undefeated.

In the 4th and 5th place positions, Glacier and Butte have switched after the Wolfpack took down the Bulldogs last week in the Mining City.

The team says taking down the defending state champs on the road last week was a great way to get to 4-1 on the season.

"I mean that game was awesome,” said Glacier senior Evan Epperly.  “Playing in Naranche is obviously a cool experience to have and then to get a win against the state champs, that was sweet."

"Everyone was really excited about it,” agreed senior runningback Noah James.  “I mean at the beginning of the year we definitely circled that game on our schedule.  They were one of the top teams coming in and their head coach use to coach with our head coach so there's a little bit of blood there and it was fun."

"You know the thing about that game is it was probably one of the most special nights I've ever had in athletics,” said Glacier head coach Grady Bennett about the win in Butte. “I mean you live for those nights.  The atmosphere in Naranche Stadium is incredible, I mean we'd heard about it but hadn't gotten a chance to play there yet.  It's just awesome.  Butte fans are great, they're passionate, they're right on top of you, they've only lost once there so it was an incredible experience.  I just reminded this is an incredible atmosphere, go out and enjoy it, compete hard every play and soak this up.  And they did that and I really was proud of our guys that night."
