Montana State Football Loses Game Against Utah for 2020 Season
Well, that's one game so far.
406 MT Sports is reporting that due to the Pac 12 conference making the decision this past weekend to only play conference games, Montana State and other Big Sky Conference schools have lost out on not only a non conference game for their season but a lot of money as well.
Montana State was scheduled to play the University of Utah Utes on Saturday, September 12th at Rice-Eccles Stadium.
Many big profile schools will schedule non conference games against teams from the FCS level(Big Sky Conference, North Dakota State, etc.) to not only fill out their schedules but to hopefully get a great win in front of a home crowd.
For the FCS teams trouble, they get paid...pretty well to play these games.
Many teams use this money to help the university or help fund the other sports at the school.
Montana State was going to get paid $675,000 for this game. That's gonna hurt.
That money helps out the college in so many ways. From updating facilities to taking care of travel expenses and so much more. Hopefully they will figure out a way to recoup that money they were planning on to receive.
More decisions about the upcoming fall sports season is coming up soon, college football is the biggest question mark of them all.
Will it be moved to the spring? Will all conferences do conference only games? Will it happen?
These are all things that need to be addressed within the next month and a half and we will be waiting to see.
