MSU Volleyball v. Idaho State

Montana State junior Allyssa Rizzo returns a volley during a game against Idaho State on Nov. 15, 2018, in Shroyer Gym.

Montana State will host nine conference opponents and a non-league game against Seattle this upcoming season, the school announced Thursday.

"We're excited to be hosting ten matches in Shroyer Gym this fall," head coach Daniel Jones said in a press release. "Montana State is one of the toughest venues in the Big Sky Conference and our crowd is second to none. Last year's Brawl of the Wild match against Montana was a sell-out and the largest crowd to witness a Big Sky match. And, that is a testament to our fans and their loyalty to our program."

MSU recorded five matches with over 1,000 in attendance. The rest of the Big Sky combined saw four matches with 1,000 or more. MSU's largest attendance of 1,500 fans saw the Bobcats defeat rival Montana 3-0 on Oct. 23.

"We are on the cusp of doing some great things at Montana State," Jones said. "The program is on the rise, and part of that is due to our fan base. We'd like to sell-out Shroyer for all of our home matches."

MSU will play its lone nonconference match in Shroyer Gym on Sept. 17 against Seattle at 6 p.m. Home Big Sky matches include Idaho, Eastern Washington, Weber State, Idaho State, Sacramento State, UM, Northern Colorado, Southern Utah and Northern Arizona. The only league school the Bobcats won't host is Portland State.

The Brawl of the Wild match is slated for Oct. 29.
