The Montana State Bobcats will need to get an early start on their comeback against the No. 1 Sam Houston State Bearkats, as they are losing at halftime, 21-6. The Bobcats had a promising drive stall once again inside Sam Houston State territory. Quarterback DeNarius McGhee found John Ellis and Elvis Akpla on the drive and reached the SHSU 19-yard line. However, McGhee was under pressure at that point and had to throw the ball away several times.
A field goal attempts came with two seconds left, bu the Bearkats blocked Jason Cunningham's 39-yard attempt. He had missed a 46-yard field goal earlier in the quarter.
The Bearkats got their latest touchdown in a crazy fashion. Brian Bell threw a pass that Montana State tipped. It stayed up in the air and wound up in Richard Sincere's hands. He was able to break through several tackles and had a 40-yard touchdown reception to show for it.
Montana State receiver Elvis Akpla had one of the most amazing catches we'll ever see. He caught the ball one-handed, used his helmet to keep possession and then kept it in that hand and behind his back for the reception.
