Montana State teams bring home wins from Reno ASC Estimating Competition :

  • Montana State achieved another first this year at the Reno ASC Estimating Competition – placing in all of the five categories that Montana State competed in.  The best Montana State has done in the past was placing in three categories.  Placing 1st, 2nd, or 3rd is the Benchmark that is used to compare the success of the 40+ Universities that compete in the Estimating Competition, and Montana State will be at the top this year – ranked ahead of schools like Stanford, USC, BYU, Arizona State, Colorado State, and all the other much bigger programs throughout the western U.S.  After the Awards Ceremony, one of the Boise State coaches simply stated “The Mouse (Montana State) Roared Again.”
