BOZEMAN — Governor Steve Bullock and Montana State University head football coach Jeff Choate held a press conference on Tuesday and one the topics was about the importance of wearing a mask.

"I think we can all agree we would like to see the Brawl of the Wild take place this year,” said Bullock.

During the press conference, it was announced that University of Montana head football coach Bobby Hauck and Choate have come together to make a public service announcement about wearing a mask and leading a campaign called 'Mask up Montana'.

"I see this as an act of patriotism in a lot of ways and pride in our state, and I’m looking forward to seeing all of our fellow Bobcats and Grizzlies around the state participating in the 'Mask up Montana' campaign," Choate said.

Choate talked about the state coming together and wearing a mask, no matter which team fans root for.

"This is something that really should unite our state and not divide it," said Choate. "It doesn’t matter if you wear the blue and gold or you wear the maroon and silver, this is an issue we all need to get behind. I know our boys and our fans, we want to get out to Bobcat Stadium, and I know coach Hauck and his team feel the same way."

Gov, Bullock, like the rest of sports fans around the world, is wanting games to happen, "let’s make it about keeping our businesses open -- making sure we can watch football, like we all enjoy."
