WATERTOWN, S.D.–Montana State’s football team plays at top-ranked South Dakota State Saturday night, and they’ll be bringing fans with them, via Watertown, on what they’re calling the, “Bobcat Express.”

The estimated 100 fans will fly into Watertown Regional Airport Saturday morning on a 100-seat Breeze Airways jet.

From there they’ll take two charter buses to Brookings for the 6 p.m. kickoff at Dana J. Dykhouse Stadium.

Jon Coleman with Denver Air Connection, which serves Watertown, says his airline will provide ground handling services for Breeze Airways on Saturday.

The latest FCS poll has SDSU ranked number one in the country. Montana State is ranked third.

Montana State opened the season with a 63-20 drubbing of Utah Tech. SDSU rolled past Western Oregon 42-7.
