Viks still scheduled to play at Montana on April 17 (hard to believe that is next Saturday :thumb: ). If the game is played, the Viks will get $36000 from the Griz. Griz are scheduled to play Central Washington this weekend. Here is the release from Montana...

Each team had a good drive. Viks elected to go for it from the Griz 27 instead of taking the field goal and Griz defense held. 7:48 left 1st PSU 0, UM 0.

Do our running backs really have a combined total of -1 net yards with 6+ minutes to go in the 3rd? :-|

That is correct. Seems like the Griz defense is living in our backfield. Not good. 41-7 now 4:14 left in the 3rd.

Glad I didn't pay for this. Its like the Rcoky III show where Rocky and Hulk Hogan meet for an exhibition and Rocky says before the match begins if they could get a "Poloroid" together afterwards, and Hogan throws him out of the ring. Well, I think we've been thrown out of the ring.

Wonder if we can still get the "Poloroid". Griz up now 48-7.
