The MontanaSports.com podcast with Richie Melby and Slim Kimmel breaks down the 118th meeting between Montana and Montana State and discusses whether Saturday’s Cat-Griz winner is deserving of a playoff berth.
The Montana high school football state championships are this weekend, as well. Billings West hosts Kalispell Flathead for the Class AA state title on Friday, while the Class A, Class B, 8-Man and 6-Man championships are Saturday. Billings Central travels to Hamilton for a matchup of unbeatens in Class A, Fairfield is at Missoula Loyola in Class B, and Wibaux hosts Jordan in an all-East 6-Man championship. Drummond-Philipsburg and Great Falls Central meet for the 8-Man championship, which will be played at a neutral site — historic Naranche Stadium in Butte — for the first time.
Melby and Kimmel analyze all five championship games before making their picks for each, as well as Cat-Griz.
