The Montana State Bobcats football team was scheduled to play against Long Island on September 5th. That game has now been canceled due to the Northeastern Conference postponing its season. This is the second non-conference game that has been canceled for MSU (September 12th game against Utah). The Long Island game was to be the annual Gold Rush game for the Cats and also would have been their home opener. That leaves just Dixie State on the non-conference portion of the schedule. The annual Gold Rush game is a big favorite in Bozeman and the highlight of the early-season schedule. That said, MSU Athletic Director Leon Costello says they can enter into discussions with schools in similar situations to the fill the dates. That includes possible games with North Dakota, North Dakota State or other schools in the Missouri Valley Conference. Costello says the NCAA board of governors is scheduled to meet August 4th concerning the 2020 Big Sky Conference football season.
