The Montana State University Bobcat football squad could be set up to be the surprise team of the 2018 season.

Big Sky Conference and media have both selected the Bobcats to finish 8th in the conference in their preseason polls.

MSU would have probably been picked higher in the poll if it wasn't for their two year starting quarterback sitting out the 2018 season for academic reasons.

Good news though, MSU defensive tackle Tucker Yates is a preseason All Big Sky selection.
