Are you ready for some Cat Football? The 2012 season opener is now just hours away! Thursday night's game will be the first home night game in school history.

Our MSU Bobcats have a lot going for them heading into the season opener under the lights against Division II powerhouse Chadron State: a talented third-year starting quarterback, a solid defense that is returning 9 starters, and a head coach entering his sixth season who continues to keep the Cats improving. It all equals up to a #4 national ranking and even higher expectations here in Bozeman.
