Montana sets 2015 football schedule

Missoula, MT ( – The University of Montana football program
will face a particularly tough ending to its Big Sky Conference schedule next

Montana released an 11-game schedule on Friday which wraps up with three of the
Grizzles’ final four games on the road. The lone home game in that stretch will
be against Eastern Washington, which has won the last three Big Sky titles, on
Nov. 14, followed by a Nov. 21 visit to rival Montana State for the 115th

The season opener against North Dakota State on Aug. 29 was previously tabbed
by ESPN as the FCS Kickoff game to open the 2015 college football schedule.

The Grizzlies are 8-4 this season and will host San Diego on Saturday in the
FCS playoff first round. Third-year coach Mick Delaney will retire after this
