The University of Montana Athletic Department and Grizzly football will honor our nation's armed forces on Saturday, October 27.

UM Sports Information Director Eric Taber tells us that  it's the annual Military Appreciation Game and the Griz are looking for veteran, active duty and Gold Star family volunteers who would like to participate in the on-field flag presentation. If you would like to volunteer, there is a form that needs to be completed, available here. As many of you know, it's quite an emotional spectacle to see an enormous flag unfurled during pregame festivities at Washington-Grizzly Stadium.

Game time vs. a very talented U.C. Davis team is 2:00 p.m. October 27. Also, there are limited tickets available at special military discount rates for veteran and active duty military who prefer not to participate in the on-field ceremony, but still would like to attend the game. These tickets are just $20 each (limit 4) to those with military ID. They are not available online, only at the Adams Center Ticket Office or at 1-888-MONTANA.

Thank you for your service and your support of Griz Nation!
