Editor’s Note: Leading up to the 118th edition of the fierce football rivalry between the Bobcats and the Grizzlies, Skyline Sports will provide features on five of the game’s key matchups between Montana and Montana State.
It’s no secret — as quarterback Dalton Sneed goes, so goes the Montana offense.
The expressive, elusive quarterback has been at his best in the last two weeks, throwing for 543 yards, running for 181 and accounting for nine total touchdowns with no interceptions in blowout wins over Southern Utah and Idaho.
When he’s playing well, Sneed can reach a level that matches any quarterback in the Big Sky. In fact, he may have the highest upside of any signal caller in the league, matching the throwing ability of UC Davis junior Jake Maier or Idaho State senior Tanner Gueller with the dangerous running of his Bozeman rival Troy Anderson.
