Msu Clips Idaho State On Late Td

Associated Press

Montana State quarterback Jeff Tuss hit Eric Hopkins with a 35-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter to lead the Bobcats to an 18-14 win Saturday over Idaho State in Pocatello, Idaho.

The loss was the first of the season for the Bengals (2-1 Big Sky, 5-1 overall). MSU’s win put the Bobcats (2-1, 5-2) in a three-way tie for second place in the conference.

Tuss completed 10 of 19 passes for 107 yards and was intercepted once, while ISU’s Robb Wetta went 19 of 36 for 220 yards.

Both teams scored off blocked punts in the second half and an ISU turnover set up Tuss’ game-winning score.
