The University of Montana Grizzly football team got the win against the Weber State Wildcats 42-6 in a blowout victory at Washington-Grizzly Stadium.

The Grizzlies and Wildcats are two teams at opposite ends of the conference standings. Montana currently sits fourth while Weber State sits lasts.

Last time these two teams met, the Griz won 24-21. Um scored twice in the fourth quarter to close out the game. Montana has also won 13 of the last 15 meetings between these teams.

But Saturday when Weber State plays Montana it will also mark the return of former Griz head coach Robin Pflugrad, who is in his first season as the offensive coordinator at Weber State.

This will be the first time for Pflugrad coaching Inside Washington-Grizzliy Stadium, since he led the Griz to a conference championship back in 2011.

Montana says having Pflugrad coaching on the opposing sideline this weekend will make the game that much more interesting.

"You know there will be some tricks coach Pflugrad has, there will be some reverses, reverse passes and throwbacks and some of that stuff, said UM head coach Mick Delaney. "That's one thing that I think personality wise that it's good to know some of the things that we practiced for a couple of years."

"I don't think we're going to have any problem getting up for this game, said Griz senior William Poehls. "It's going to be our last regular season home game, it's going against coach Pflugrad so that's got to add something to it for a lot of the older guys."

"Going into this game we feel like we know this offense, said Griz sophomore Caleb Kidder. "There's a couple of things here and there that they do differently, but other than that, as a defense I feel like this is gut check time."
