The No. 1 Montana State Bobcats are going to need to pull off a fourth-quarter comeback if they want to secure the No. 1 overall seed in the FCS playoffs. They are down, 29-7, to the Montana Grizzlies at the start of the final frame.
After the Bobcats and the Grizzlies exchanged touchdowns on the first two drives of the third quarter, State was unable to find the end zone again. The Grizzlies, though, were able to secure a 33-yard field goal and a Dan Moore 37-yard rushing touchdown later in the quarter to open up a 22-point lead.
The Bobcats are in danger of losing their No. 1 ranking and a potential shot at being the No. 1 overall seed in the 2011 FCS playoffs, the bracket of which is revealed on Sunday morning.
