Grizzlies were ranked No. 2 in the preseason FCS rankings. Montana State was also in the rankings at No. 24.
They're not alone in the Big Sky Conference though, my wonderful Eastern Washington Eagles are ranked no. 13 even though they have a new quarterback at the helm.
The Weber State Wildcats were ranked 19.
And Idaho State? Well they just suck. But four teams ranked in the Big Sky Conference means that everyone is thinking that it's going to be competitive this year. Wow.
