Montana St. outlasts N. Colorado 35-28

GREELEY, Colo. -- Cody Kirk rushed for 180 yards and two touchdowns as Montana State held off Northern Colorado for a 35-28 win Saturday.

Montana State (7-2, 5-0 Big Sky) just could not pull away from Northern Colorado (1-8, 0-5). The Bobcats jumped out to separate leads of 14 and 13 points, only to see the Bears reel them back in.

Trailing 27-14 in the fourth quarter, Seth Lobato threw a touchdown pass to Austin Wilbers and ran for another as Northern Colorado took a 28-27 lead. Montana State responded with a 12-play, 69-yard scoring drive. Kirk capped the drive with a 9-yard touchdown run. DeNarius McGhee found Kirk for the two-point conversion.

Northern Colorado would get two chances to drive for the tying score, but both ended on failed fourth down conversions.

Lobato finished 30 of 43 for 291 yards and two touchdowns, but he also threw one interception.
