The first Grizzly football win is in the books after that smokin' hot game on Saturday! And what better way to kick off the season than with a score 23-45 and a W in the books?!

If you missed our tailgate before the game and at half time, it was one heck of a party! Thanks to our friends at MillerCoors, we started an awesome collection to raise money for the Wildland Firefighter Foundation. We will continue to take donations for the foundation at EVERY home Griz game from now until the end of October! 100% of the donations we raise will go back to the foundation!

The game itself, while crazy hot, was super fun! In typical Griz fashion, the players gave us something to cheer about. And the Griz fans in return cheered through the heatstroke and gave the team something to play for! I guess you could say that it was a team effort both on and off the field!

Saturday's game was a great practice run to get UM ready to take on the Washington Huskies next weekend and Savannah St. the weekend after! With all of Griz nation behind them, hopefully the boys will get a couple more wins under their belt before regular season starts!
