I'll keep this one short and sweet. The Griz put on their best performance of the year. In fact this could be considered their best effort since drilling McNeese State and Southern Illinois in back-to-back weeks in the 2006 playoffs. The Griz haven't looked this complete in that long.

Northern Arizona came in as the top ranked rushing defense. So much for that. Chase Reynolds plowed over the Lumberjacks for 157 yards on only 12 carries, racking up three touchdowns. Combined the Griz running backs compiled over 200 yards on the ground. Oh yeah, and Cole Bergquist came through with 187 yards and three TD's of his own.

On the flipside, Montana State took care of business against an always pesky Northern Colorado team. Obviously a 20-7 win doesn't look all that great on paper - but it's the second largest margin of victory this year by a Big Sky team over UNC (second only to Montana's win last week).  Questions might arise after QB Cody Kempt was replaced by Mark Iddins after what could have been a very costly pick late in the game.

Griz and Cats fans have a lot to be happy about this week. The Griz obviously look on top of their game, while the Cats can certainly use this victory as a springboard for a final three game-run. Wins over NAU and Portland State look quite plausible and could set up a big showdown with the Griz for a possible playoff spot on Nov. 22.
