History[edit]

Idaho and Montana first played in 1903 and have played 84 times.

Idaho has dominated the overall series (55–27–2), which also includes two I-AA playoff wins at home in the 1980s. Montana has had the upper hand since 1991, winning eight of the last ten. Since Idaho moved back up to Division I-A from Division I-AA in 1996, the teams have met five times with Montana winning the last four.[1]

The schools were the only public universities in their respective states for decades, and are about 200 miles (320 km) miles apart.

Moscow and Missoula are on opposite sides of the lower Idaho Panhandle, separated by the Bitterroot Mountains over Lolo Pass. Both were members of the old Pacific Coast Conference (the forerunner of today's Pac-12); Montana departed after the 1950 season, and the PCC disbanded in the summer of 1959.

The universities were charter members of the Big Sky Conference in 1963 and their final season as conference opponents in football was 1995. While Montana has remained in the Big Sky to this day, Idaho football has changed its conference affiliation no fewer than five times since then:
