  • The Grizzlies’ annual football game against the rival Montana State Bobcats is famously called the “Brawl of the Wild.” In 109 games, the Griz lead the rivalry with a record of 71-33-5.
  • UM ranked 7th in Street & Smith’s magazine among all-time best women’s basketball programs
  • UM has 18 club sports—including the 2007 MCLA-B national champion lacrosse team—and more than 30 intramural sports
