The broadcast of Saturday’s football game between Montana and UC Davis has been moved to Root Sports Northwest, the Big Sky Conference announced Thursday.

Max Media was originally scheduled to televise the game throughout the state of Montana, but due to a conflict with Major League Baseball playoffs on Max Media’s Fox affiliates, Root Sports will show the game instead.

The game will still air live on KULR-8, Max Media’s NBC affiliate in Billings.

Coverage is scheduled to begin at 5 p.m. MDT from Aggie Stadium in Davis, Calif. Chris Byers will handle the play-by-play duties with Grady Bennett serving as color commentator. Anna Cole will be the sideline reporter.

The Big Sky also said the game will be available on smartphones and tablets in HD quality via the free Syncbak app, available on both iOS and Android platforms.

Go to the app store and download the Syncbak app and a Montana Sports Network icon will be available on your device on game day. The game will also be available for free on
