BOZEMAN -- Montana State announced its football captains at the conclusion of the Sonny Holland spring scrimmage Saturday at Bobcat Stadium.
The Bobcats have experienced a huge surge on the turnover ledger this season. At plus-10 entering this week’s game vs. UC Davis, MSU is at its highest point in that important statistic during Rob Ash’s seven-year tenure as coach.
It's been a season of numbers-crunching here on the blog. More, it seems, than in previous years. So let's keep it going, and take a look at the production of the Bobcats' pass defense.
Montana State's 11 victories last year were its most single-season wins in a generation. In fact, the Bobcats are fresh off a three-year run where they went 30-8 overall and 21-3 in the Big Sky Conference. The latter record is tops in the league in that span.
Kane Ioane has seen it all at Montana State, from when the football program was erased like a chalkboard and rebuilt from scratch when he came in as a freshman in 2000, all the way to 2012 when it won more games than it had in nearly 30 years.
We're one day closer to kickoff for the 112th meeting between Montana and Montana State -- the biggest event in our great state every year.
Montana State has not lost to Portland State in Rob Ash’s tenure as head coach.
