StatSmack! Montana is better than Idaho State
  • Mathias Ward is ranked 5th in the Big Sky in points.
  • More violent crime happens per capita in Pocatello so be careful if you visit (when compared to Missoula -- according to the FBI).
  • That must sting. Montana has blown out Idaho State by 20 points or more on seven occasions since 1998.
  • Montana has come back to win after being down at half against Idaho State six times since 1997.
