GRAND FORKS, N.D. — Over the past two seasons the Montana football team has suffered embarrassment and savored near perfection in the Alerus Center.
Move beyond last year’s numbers if you can. No. 11 Montana is pinning its chances this week on separate statistics altogether.
The bye week came at an unusual time (Week 2) for the Griz. But as coach Mick Delaney says, it is what it is. Delaney told me Tuesday morning that his team spent the majority of its off-week getting refreshed mentally as opposed to physically.

Quarterback Braden Hanson and wideout Greg Hardin put on an incredible air show Saturday, burning the Montana Grizzlies up and down the field in North Dakota’s 40-34 Big Sky Conference victory.
The Montana Grizzlies couldn't do it. Frankly, nobody in the Big Sky Conference has either.
GRAND FORKS, N.D. — Together, North Dakota’s Braden Hanson and Greg Hardin are Red River H2O: Hanson set one Big Sky record Saturday with 660 yards passing and Hardin set another with 333 receiving.
