Montana dominates Southern Utah to snap losing streak
MISSOULA, Mont. —
Montana and head coach Bobby Hauck were looking to avoid their first four game losing streak since 1992, and they played like it. They dominated southern Utah in every aspect winning, 57-14.
They out gained the Lumberjacks 635-241, won the turnover battle 2-0, had ten more minutes of possession. They went 13-19 on third downs, and held Southern Utah to just three third down conversions.
Dalton Sneed had one of his best games of the season, throwing for 323 yards and five touchdowns. Samuel Akem and Keenan Curran both caught multiple touchdown passes, and Jeremy Calhoun ran for 99 yards and a score.
The Montana defense held Southern Utah to just 73 yards on the ground and 168 through the air. They have shown struggles in the second half, but became even tighter this week, shutting out the Lumberjacks.
The Grizzlies continue their road trek next week at Idaho, before coming home for the Brawl of the Wild.
