Lunardi's Logic

One thing for sure is that Montana's opening game with Wisconsin will be low-scoring. The Badgers are fourth in the nation in defensive efficiency and the Grizzlies are 42nd. It could be first team to 50 points wins on Thursday in Albuquerque, and I'm fairly certain that will be Wisconsin.
