BOZEMAN, Mont. -- DeNarius McGhee tossed four touchdown passes to lead Montana State to a 33-6 win over Chadron State Thursday night in the season opener for both teams.

The first night home football game in Montana State history drew 20,767.

McGhee connected twice with Jon Ellis for touchdowns and added TD passes to Tray Robinson and Tiai Salanoa. Orenzo Davis, who missed last season due to academic issues, scored on a 4-yard run in the fourth quarter.

Division II Chadron State scored on two field goals by Alex Ferdinand. Glen Clinton highlighted the Eagles' offense with 61 yards rushing.

McGhee, a junior, was 29 of 40 for 176 yards and has thrown a scoring pass in 26 consecutive games. MSU outgained the Eagles 401-135 as Cody Kirk led the Bobcats with 91 yards on the ground, and Davis added 63 more.
