The Montana Grizzlies football program represents the University of Montana in the Division I Football Championship Subdivision of college football. The Grizzlies have competed in the Big Sky Conference since 1963, they play their home games on campus in Missoula at Washington–Grizzly Stadium, where they had an average attendance of 25,377 in 2016. The Grizzlies had a winning season from 1986 to 2011. In Washington-Grizzly Stadium, they have a winning percentage of.890 including playoffs. They hold the records for most playoff appearances in a row, Big Sky Conference titles in a row, overall playoff appearances, their success made them the most successful program in all of college football in the 2000s and third most successful team in FCS in the 1990s. The University of Montana's first football season was in 1897, where they won a single game against future rival Montana State; the team played only schools from Montana until it helped found the Northwest Intercollegiate Athletic Association in 1902.
In addition to Montana, this original Northwest Conference included Washington, Washington State, Oregon State and Whitman College. Despite the association's stated goal of increasing intercollegiate athletics, Montana continued to play only the nearest teams; the team would not win a game against a conference opponent until a 10-0 win over Washington State in 1914. In 1915, the Northwest Conference had become superfluous with the creation of the Pacific Coast Conference, which by 1924 included the five public Northwest Conference schools from Washington and Idaho, in addition to California and Stanford. Montana remained there through the 1949 season. Montana won only nine conferences games, never played a home game against a team from the state of California. No team was organized in 1918, due to the 1918 flu pandemic. Record, vs. CatsDoug Fessenden was the first Montana coach to last more than five years, of those who coached more than two years, he was the first to end his career with a winning record.
The program was on hiatus for the 1943 and 1944 seasons, due to World War II. Of the six teams in the northern division of the PCC, only Washington continued through the war. In 1948, the Montana board of education announced that it was de-emphasizing athletics at the state university. Key to the university's decision was the feeling that continued affiliation with the conference was incompatible with the goal to "keep intercollegiate athletics properly subordinated to the academic function" and they would "seek to develop competition in all sports with institutions similar in purpose, size and academic standing." The conference was only "preferable to having no conference affiliation."In 1951, Montana joined the Mountain States Conference, popularly known as the Skyline Conference. It would compete there until the conference dissolved in 1962. Montana never had a winning season in the Skyline and never won more than three games until 1960. In 1963, Montana joined Gonzaga, Idaho State, Weber State, Montana State in forming the Big Sky Conference.
Record, vs. Cats Montana's football struggles continued in the new Big Sky Conference, the team had only won nine games in its first four seasons when school officials decided that a coaching change was needed. Following a 1–9 season in 1966, University of Montana president Robert T. Pantzer announced in December the hiring of Jack Swarthout, a former quarterback/halfback/end from Montana. Swarthout brought on Jack Elway as an assistant and they improved the team to 7–3 in their first season. Within two years, Swarthout guided the team to back-to-back undefeated regular seasons in 1969 and 1970, Montana's first Big Sky Conference titles. At the end of both years, they were defeated by North Dakota State in the Camellia Bowl, part of a set of bowls that determined the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision national championship, prior to the current FCS playoff structure. Continued success was expected, but a disappointing season in 1971 was followed by a work-study scandal that led to Swarthout's resignation.
In 1972, a federal grand jury returned a 32-count indictment charging five university officials and coaches with conspiring to illegally use federal-aid money to pay for fictitious jobs for athletes. Though Swarthout was found not guilty, the charges hurt recruiting and the student-body government decided to withdraw financial support for athletic programs. Despite the controversy and resultant performance decline, Swarthout is credited as being the coach that turned Montana into a winning football program. Record, vs. Cats After Swarthout's departure, Montana would register only one winning season over the next 10 years. In November 1985, Montana fired coach Larry Donovan and replaced him with Portland State's head coach, Don Read. Over the next 10 years, Montana would go 85-36, have 10 straight winning seasons, was undefeated against cross-state rival Montana State. Read would win 2 conference titles, make the FCS playoffs 5 times and win Montana's first national championship. Record, vs. CatsMick Dennehy had been the offensive coordinator under Don Read and was promoted to head coach when Read retired in 1995.
Dennehy continued Montana's success, making it to the national championship in his first year for a rematch against Marshall University. This time, Montana lost 49–29. Montana made the playoffs every year under Den
