U.S. SENATE —For the fifth straight year, Montana’s U.S. Senator Steve Daines and Montana Attorney General Tim Fox and continue their ‘Brawl of the Wild’ wager for the University of Montana – Montana State University football game. The Bobcats (4-6) and Grizzlies (7-3) clash this Saturday at Bobcat Stadium in Bozeman.
The terms of this year’s bet: the loser will sport the colors of the winning team and record a video, congratulating them. The loser will share the video on Twitter and Facebook.
“As Attorney General Fox had to learn the hard way last year, we call it Cat-Griz for a reason,” said Sen. Daines. “I look forward to celebrating the win at an electric Bobcat Stadium this weekend and keeping the Great Divide Trophy in Bozeman for another year. I know Attorney General Fox already has a nice Blue and Gold ball cap – I encourage him to wear it in the video he’ll be sending my way after Saturday’s game.”
“Although the rivalry between us has been a bit rough on the Senator, I was able to convince him to keep the wager alive after the Cats finally scored a victory last season following a three-year drought,” Fox said. “I hope Steve held on to the nice Griz shirt I gave him a few years back as a prize for one of his three losses. He’s going to need it.”
Senator Daines graduated from Montana State University in 1984 with a degree in chemical engineering. Attorney General Fox graduated from the University of Montana in 1981 with a degree in geology and in 1987 with a law degree.
