It was a defensive slugfest Friday night in Ogden, Utah as Montana State prevailed 13-7 over Weber State in a battle of two teams ranked top 20 in the FCS.

"That was the mark going into this game could we be the more physical team, who would win the battle at the line of scrimmage and it was pretty dang tight," Montana State Head Football Coach, Brent Vigen said after the game. "Ultimately we got them in third and long, we took out a lead they were forced into pass mode and we could turn our guys loose and make it hard on them." 

Weber State took their opening drive of the game 97 yards down the field and capped it off with a 9-yard touchdown run from Josh Davis to take an early 7-0 lead less than five minutes into the game. 

The Bobcats would respond late in the opening quarter with 1-yard touchdown run from quarterback Matthew McKay to tie the game up 7-7.

Neither team would find paydirt the rest of the game as a pair of field goals from MSU's Blake Glessner in the third quarter would be the only other points on the board Friday night.

Montana State improves to 6-1 on the season with a 4-0 conference record. Weber State drops to 2-4 overall and 1-2 in league games.
