Northern Iowa Vs. Montana Score: Peter Nguyen Has Grizzlies In 21-10 Lead

The Montana Grizzlies are running on all cylinders against the Northern Iowa Panthers in the quarterfinals of the 2011 FCS Playoffs. The Grizzlies hold a 21-10 lead late in the second quarter.

After Jordan Johnson's rushing touchdown for the Grizzlies, the Panthers answered with a 21-yard field goal to cut the game to 14-10. The Grizzlies and the Panthers followed that with punts on the next two drives. With the ball at UNI's 47-yard line, Peter Nguyen appeared to have broken off a run for a touchdown, but he was ruled to have stepped out of bounds at the 10-yard line. The ruling was confirmed upon replay.

However, that didn't slow the Grizzlies down. Johnson made a haphazard throw on the next play that could have been intercepted, but it fell incomplete. Nguyen then answered with a 10-yard touchdown run and the 21-10 lead.
