The Montana State Bobcats erased a 21-7 halftime lead by the Northern Colorado Bears, coming back strong in the 4th quarter to eventually win 27-24 on a Gabe Peppenger 27 yard field goal on the last play of the game.

Shutting down N. Colorado in the 2nd half, the Bobcat defense held tough allowing the Bears only 3 second half points. Meanwhile the Cat offense scored 17 4th quarter points to get the win; including an impressive 13-play, 73 yard drive to close out the game.

Sophomore quarterback Chris Murray led the Montana State offense throwing for 222 yards and rushing for 150. Mitch Herbert also had 6 catches for 105 yards.

The Bobcats are now 3-2 in the Big Sky Conference. They’re back home for the next two Saturdays at Bobcat Stadium. Next Saturday they’ll host Idaho State in the Cap on Cancer game at 1:30 p.m.
