The 2013 Montana Grizzly football season may have ended in disappointing fashion, but one after another, speakers at the Sunday December 8th football awards banquet encouraged players, parents and fans to consider how remarkable a season it was.
The Big Sky Conference got some big-time respect from the FCS (Football Championship Subdivision) selection committee with a total of four teams in the 24 team playoff field, and the University of Montana Grizzlies gaining the No. 8 seed.
The Montana Grizzlies lead the Big Sky Conference in turnover margin, a fact of which Weber State is now well aware, giving up six turnovers in their Saturday November 16 42-6 loss at Washington-Grizzly Stadium.
On a day when the normally unflappable Jordan Johnson threw three interceptions, Montana's defense and special teams came through with yet another heart-pounding win on the road, beating the University of South Dakota 31-27.
