TSN takes Griz over Sac


Well-known member
No. 12 Montana (6-2, 3-2 Big Sky) at Sacramento State (4-4, 3-1)

Kickoff: 4:05 p.m. (Max Media)

What to know: After starting the season 1-3, the Sacramento State football team has won three of its last four games - all in the Big Sky Conference - and looks to make it a fourth league win over Montana this weekend. The Grizzlies are coming off a loss at home to Eastern Washington, and will try to climb back up toward the top of the conference standings.

Each team in this contest features a dangerous receiver - Montana's Ellis Henderson and Sacramento State's DeAndre Carter each have 11 touchdown receptions this season. But while the Grizzlies add a dimension to their offense with the running ability of Jordan Canada and Travon Van (who's slowed by an ankle injury), the Hornets lack a strong ground game.

Ezekiel Graham leads Sacramento State in rushing with 322 yards and two touchdowns. Quarterback Garrett Safron is the team leader in rushing touchdowns with three. If the Hornets present a one-dimensional offense in the game against a talented Montana defensive backfield, it could be a long game for Safron and Carter.

Prediction: Montana 34, Sacramento State 21
Yes, the "...talented Montana defensive backfield" that gave up six passing touchdowns last weekend. Still. I'll take Montana any day over any Hornet team. Hope TSN is right.
