This year’s theme, ‘Legacy and Gridiron Glory: 74 years of Bulldog Football at Vigilante Field,’ celebrates the legacy of Montana Western Athletics at Vigilante Field. As we recognize the end of an era with the final season of UMW football to be played at Vigilante this year, we also look to the future in eager anticipation of the completion of the new Sports & Activities Complex on the Montana Western campus,” said Jolene Robbins, UMW Events and Alumni Coordinator.
