Heading into their quarterfinal showdown with Northern Iowa Friday night in Missoula, the Grizzlies are playing their best football at the perfect time. Quarterback Jordan Johnson has rushed for 356 yards in a zone/read option ground game that is essentially a four-headed monster. Peter Nguyen leads the way with 768 yards, while fellow running backs Jordan Canada and Dan Moore have amassed 532 and 375 yards, respectively.
The game is set for a 8 p.m. EST kickoff Friday night at Washington-Grizzly Stadium, and will be broadcast on ESPN. The winner advances to the semifinal round to play the winner of a quarterfinal matchup between Montana State and Sam Houston State.
