The Montana State Bobcats were unable to upset the No.1 Sam Houston State Bearkats in the quarterfinals of the 2011 FCS Playoffs. They fell, 49-13, on Saturday afternoon.

The Bearkats were able to crush the Montana State defense by rushing for over 430 yards while the Bobcats could only crack 77 yards on the ground.

Quarterback Brian Bell didn't pass much, but he did throw two touchdown passes and rush for a 54-yard touchdown.

Montana State was rarely ever able to get into a rhythm. Quarterback DeNarius McGhee did throw for 267 yards and a touchdown, but it was far too little. Wide receiver Elvis Akpla had an amazing one-handed catch to highlight the game for the Bobcats.
