The Montana Grizzlies are still very much alive the second half of Friday's 2011 FCS Playoffs semifinal matchup with the No. 1 Sam Houston State Bearkats. Montana just scored a touchdown in the third quarter to bring the score to 31-21.
The Bearkats failed to fully capitalize on another Jordan Johnson turnover when he lost control of the ball at his own 13-yard line. Craig Alaniza hit a 25-yard field goal to extend the lead to 31-14 at the time, but the Grizzlies were ready to answer right back.
Quarterback Jordan Johnson completed five passes on the next drive, including passes for 22 and 14 yards. The latter put the Grizzlies at Sam Houston State's eight-yard line. Jordan Canada then ran for five yards before picking up the three-yard touchdown run to close out the drive.
But will Sam Houston State's Tim Flanders still run straight through the Montana defense?
