FCS Bracket 2011, Sam Houston State Vs. Montana State Final Score

Sam Houston State put on quite the show Saturday afternoon as they defeated Montana State in the FCS quarterfinals match-up. Sam Houston State entered the tournament as the top-seeded team in the bracket and their 49-13 victory over Montana State on ESPN will do nothing to dispel that.

Sam Houston State advances of the FCS semifinals with the victory and will play Montana at home in Huntsville, Texas, next Friday or Saturday. Montana defeated Northern Iowa, 48-10, to advance to the semifinals themselves.

Sam Houston State led 21-6 at halftime, but it was the third quarter when the blowout really happened as the score was 42-13 heading into the final quarter. Sam Houston's Brian Bell completed just five of his 12 passing attempts for 73 yards and a pair of touchdowns, but picked up 63 yards and a touchdown on the ground to complement his meager passing statistics.

Montana State was able to convert on just three of their 14 third-down conversions, causing the majority of their 344 total yards to be all but wasted. The team's lone touchdown came when DeNarius McGhee connected with Everett Gilbert on a 7-yard pass to begin the third quarter.
