College sports, specifically football, is a really big deal in Montana. The growing popularity has put a lot of stress on facilities at MSU, and many on them are in desperate need of upgrades. One of the main priorities for the school is an indoor practice facility, and several donations have been rolling in since plans for the new facility were announced late last year.

The new facility will have 100 yards of turf for football practices, a 300-meter indoor track and areas for field events such as throws and jumps, providing MSU's student-athletes a safe and protected place to train during periods of harsh weather.

On Monday, MSU announced that it had surpassed $25 million of its $26 million goal.

We need your help to cross the finish line and realize our dream of the Indoor Athletic Center for all Bobcat student-athletes. Your support now will continue to make MSU Athletics the premier program in the Big Sky Conference.
