The University of Montana Grizzly football team did not win Saturday's contest at Eastern Washington University, but the excitement of fans was evident throughout the game at the first ever Town Pump Grizzly Viewing Party at Caras Park Saturday.

The area was filled with 10 big screen televisions and even stadium announcer Peter Christian was on hand for the "First Down - Montana!" cheers.

The game stretched from the afternoon pre-game into the evening final quarter and the unfortunate final score with Eastern Washington University picking up an on-side kick and going in for their final total of 32 to the University of Montana's 26.

The Grizzlies are now 2 and 3 on the season and 0 and 2 in conference play.
