Following the Pioneer Football League’s announcement on Monday to conduct a conference-only schedule for its member institutions, Morehead State director of athletics Jamie Gordon has informed Montana director of athletics Kent Haslam of his intention to obtain a waiver from the Pioneer League to play the Montana/Morehead State game as scheduled.

While understanding the state of college athletics is in flux, it remains the intention of both institutions to play the nonconference game as scheduled on September 19 in Missoula.

The University of Montana, the Big Sky Conference, its presidents and athletic directors will continue to monitor national developments and proceed in a way that ensures the health and safety of student-athletes and the community at large.

The Grizzlies are currently set to open the 2020 season on September 12 at Missouri State.
