FCS Pick of the Week: Montana vs. North Dakota State

Everyone on the radio is touting September 3rd as the first day of the college football season. That's not true. August 29th is the official first day of the college football season, as the Montana Grizzlies take on four time defending national champions North Dakota State. The NDSU Bison is, as was mentioned, coming off their fourth consecutive FCS title, a number unmatched in 1-AA/FCS history. The Bison travel to face perennial power house Montana for the "Kickoff Classic" of FCS football, and this game should be great. NDSU must be applauded for agreeing to take on a difficult road game like this. The game will be televised on ESPN at 12:30 PST tomorrow, and this will be the debut of new Montana coach Bob Stitt, who comes to the Grizzlies from Colorado Mines.

Our Pick: North Dakota State

NDSU should win a close road game to launch their campaign for a fifth title. Look for this game to finish inside of seven points, with the game coming down to the fourth quarter.

More picks Monday night!
