Bobcat fans turned out in force to show their support at the annual Family Funday in Bozeman.
There were a number of amusements for kids and a complimentary ice cream social.
Families also had the chance to meet the players and coaches and get autographs.
The Montana State University Volleyball team and Spirit Squad were also on hand.
This is wide receiver Manny Kalfell's second year on the football team but his first Family Funday.
He says the event makes him excited about the start of the season.
"Just knowing the support you have with the community and statewide even, in Griz country over on the west side of the state. It's good to see people come out and enjoy watching us," says Kalfell.
MSU's football season kicks off Thursday, August 30th with a game against Chadron State.
