The Athlon Sports’ Preseason FCS Top 25 for 2018 are out. Montana got the nod at #18, which may be overly optimistic with everything that has changed in Griz Football this past season but with the return of Bobby Hauck, anything can happen!
(7-4, 5-3 Big Sky)
Griz fans hope that the return of head coach Bobby Hauck, who went 80-17 and led three FCS runner-up finishes from 2003-09, will return the longtime Big Sky power to national prominence. Quarterback Gresch Jensen, who threw for 20 touchdowns as a freshman, transferred out, but UNLV transfer Dalton Snead will connect with wide receivers Keenan Curran and Jerry Louie-McGhee. Linebacker Josh Buss is primed for a banner senior season, and safety Josh Sandry returns after intercepting three passes.
