No. 25 Kennesaw State 16, Montana State 14
Chandler Burks commanded a 20-play, fourth-quarter drive that took 10:03 off the clock, which led to a 37-yard field goal by Justin Thompson that ultimately lifted the 25th-ranked Owls of the Big South Conference to a 16-14 college football victory over MSU at Bobcat Stadium.
Montana State’s offense got the ball back with 1:55 left, but quarterback Chris Murray was intercepted by safety Taylor Henkle, and that sealed the outcome.
The Owls, the No. 1 rushing team in the FCS, grinded out 346 rushing yards. Burks had 149 yards on a staggering 34 attempts, including a short touchdown run in the first quarter.
“They were going to get their yards, that’s what they do. We needed to come back and play a little bit better against it,” said Bobcats linebacker Josh Hill.
