UM Grizzlies Football Season Starts – on KLYQ (update)
Aupdate --- FINAL SCORE - Grizzlies 26 - Northern Iowa 23.
Saturday night, the college football season comes to Missoula with the first game this year for the University of Montana Grizzlies. With returning coach Bobby Hauck, the team will play the Northern Iowa Panthers at Washington-Grizzly Stadium and will be on KLYQ 1240 AM, too. Hamilton's NewsTalk 1240 will bring you the play-by-play of the Griz football season, with our partner KGVO 1290, the voice of the Grizzlies. And, of course, the stadium announcer at all the home games is KGVO newsguy Peter Christian, co-host of our daily TalkBack program.
The game Saturday starts with the two-hour statewide Tailgate Party pre-game show at 5 p.m. and the kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m., under the lights! We understand that the Ravalli County Fair is in its final day with some great NRA rodeo at the same time, so take along your cellphone and listen on our updated KLYQ app. It's free! Go Griz!
