Kendall Webb and Chuck Cox were on the road in the Pacific Northwest recently and made their way all the way over to Missoula, Mont., to take some shots of Washington-Grizzly Stadium, the home of the powerful University of Montana football program. Webb, take it away.

Washington-Grizzly Stadium opened in 1986 and is named for Montanan Dennis Washington, a construction magnate who is listed in Forbes as one of the wealthiest people in the United States. It is home to the University of Montana Grizzlies football team, but as the largest stadium in the state, it has also hosted large concerts by the likes of Pearl Jam and The Rolling Stones. Amazingly, the stadium only added lights in time for the 2012 season, finally allowing the Grizzlies to host night games at the facility.

Cox and I aren’t fond of this stadium, at least from a competitive standpoint. Our alma mater, Stephen F. Austin, has seen its postsesaon end twice here. But the Grizzlies are always tough, and they have a great home-field advantage in those winter months. Webb and Cox got a chance to tour W-G during the trip and put together a great photo gallery.
