Yay! All Montana Grizzly Football Kickoff Times Finally Announced
Look at all of you. Eagerly awaiting the chance to schedule your departures from home, tailgate parties, post-game dinners and so forth.
Well, get out your phones or if you're like me, your old-school planner books and start filling them in! University of Montana Sports Information Director Eric Taber shared with us today (Wednesday) the complete kickoff time schedule for University of Montana football 2021. It had been pretty empty with the exception of the first game of the year.
Eric tells us that the Griz will play their home opener against Western Illinois under the lights of Washington-Grizzly Stadium. The remainder of the 2021 home schedule will start in the more traditional early afternoon time slots. There is one road game that may require you to take a nap prior to kickoff.
The Griz will face the Leathernecks at 6 p.m. on Sept. 11 in a Maroon Out night game in Missoula, with UM's home games against Cal Poly (Sept. 25), Dixie State (Oct. 9) and Sacramento State (Oct. 16) starting at 1 p.m. Home games against Southern Utah (Oct. 30) and Montana State (Nov. 20) will start at noon.
If you are now more motivated to check into ticket availability for the home opener, you might want to look into that soon at the griztix website. Some sections of the stadium still show "medium" ticket availability, but many show single seats only or sold out completely.
