NAU Falls To #6 Montana State On The Road, 45-21

The sixth-ranked Montana State Bobcats scored two touchdowns on their first two drives and never looked back as they beat the NAU Lumberjacks 45-21, Saturday in Bozeman, Montana. The game wasn’t void of controversy. The Lumberjacks trailed 21-7 midway through the second quarter when wide receiver Coleman Owen broke loose for an over 60 yard touchdown. The play was called back, in what was later discovered to be an “inadvertent whistle.” The Bobcats would lead 28-7 at halftime en route to the win. Regardless of the call, Montana State dominated the Jacks, out gaining NAU 478-to-254 yards on offense. Freshman quarterback Angel Flores made his first-start of his college career. He was 12-of-18 for 97 yards and an interception. Montana transfer quarterback Daniel Britt came into the game for his first action as a Lumberjack in the fourth quarter and on his second play, connected with Owen for a touchdown. On Britt’s second drive he connected with tight end Xander Werner for a 43 yard touchdown. Britt ended up being the leading rusher for NAU with 41 yards. NAU will finish out its home season next Saturday in the Skydome against the Northern Colorado Bears. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m.
