Two days after delivering Montana its first Big Sky Conference championship since 2009, Stats Perform announced Monday Grizzly head coach Bobby Hauck is one of 20 finalists for the 2023 Eddie Robinson FCS Coach of the Year Award.
The No. 3 Griz won the first-ever Brawl that featured both teams ranked inside the top five nationally 37-7 to win the outright Big Sky Conference Championship and a likely top-two seed and home field advantage throughout the playoffs.
The business end of the season officially arrives at Washington-Grizzly Stadium this week in a prove-it moment for Montana, with the two-time defending conference champion and No. 7 ranked Sacramento State coming to Missoula.
