With the promise of sunshine and highs in the mid-80s, it should be a beautiful Saturday for soccer!

Believe it or not, your University of Montana Grizzlies get their season underway this Saturday, August 13, with an exhibition match against the University of Alberta. Game time is 1:00 p.m. at South Campus Stadium.

It was announced Monday that Montana has been picked to finish fourth in the Big Sky Conference preseason coaches' poll. The Griz return 11 starters from last year's team and some new recruits should offer plenty of excitement.

The official home opener isn't until September 9 against Boise State, but I know the gals would love to have you come out this Saturday and show you what they got vs. Alberta!
