The 2014 MSU football season is here—that means seven home games, the Bobcat Prowl, and tailgating with our fellow Bobcats all season long. After winning two consecutive Buck Buchanan awards and three of the last four Big Sky Conference Championships, the Cats are ready for another memorable season at Bobcat Stadium.
With a strong spring campaign under their belts, the MSU women’s volleyball team is looking to get back on top of the Big Sky Conference in 2014. The home schedule gets underway on September 27 when the Cats host the Griz in the annual Brawl of the Wild match on homecoming weekend.
With both the men’s and women’s cross-country teams coming off third-place finishes at the 2013 Big Sky Championships, the Cats are on the prowl for a conference title in 2014. Led by Rachel Atwood and Michael Asay, MSU kicks off the season on September 20, when they host the MSU Invitational at Bridger Creek Golf Course.
In the spring, MSU basketball welcomed Brian Fish as the new head coach for the men’s team. Fish brings a record of success from the University of Oregon, where he helped the Ducks compile 96 wins, including three in the NCAA Tournament. The women’s team boasts nine returning players and will host home non-conference games against Gonzaga, Seattle U., and Wyoming in addition to an 18-game league ledger on their hunt for a Big Sky title in 2014-15. Finally, major renovations to Brick Breeden Fieldhouse will ensure an exciting season for MSU basketball.
