The Bengals are treading into what Rob Phenicie calls unchartered waters. The Bobcats are trying to ascend back to the place they once occupied in the Big Sky Conference not too long ago.
Idaho State hosts Montana State at Holt Arena in Pocatello, Idaho on Saturday in a game with postseason implications. Following two straight heartbreaking losses, ISU must win out to get to seven Division I wins. The 4-3 Bengals began their season with a Division II victory.
The Bobcats are also 4-3. A loss would not necessarily eliminate an MSU team that will play an 11-game Division I schedule in 2018 but it would certainly paint Montana State into a corner.
