Mustangs Break Hearts of Griz Again
On a day you'd love to celebrate a couple of incredible individual accomplishments, it's hard to feel good if you're a Griz fan.
Montana Grizzly quarterback Brady Gustafson set a single-game record for pass completions and freshman receiver Jerry Louie-McGee set a single game record for most catches. But it was a big touchdown pass play with just a few minutes to play that gave Cal Poly a one-point lead, and Griz freshman kicker Tim Simenza missed his first field goal of the year from 49 yards in a nasty wind, and the Mustangs were able to run out the clock, in 42-41 shootout in San Luis Obispo, California. The most painful stat is the pass interception and fumble that Montana surrendered in the first half, both inside their own 20 yard line that led to easy Cal Poly touchdowns. Yeah, what might have been without those mistakes.
It was Cal Poly's third win in a row over Montana. The Griz finally get to come home for only their second home game of the year, next Saturday, October 1. Happy Homecoming Week, Griz Nation. And keep the faith.
