The University of North Dakota football team suffered its third loss of the season Saturday, dropping a 49-21 Big Sky Conference game to Montana State University before 12,342 fans, the first sellout at the Alerus Center since the 2009 season opener vs. South Dakota. The 17th-ranked Fighting Hawks, who fell behind 21-0 in the first half, closed the gap to 28-13 in the third quarter on two Reid Taubenheim field goals and a 37-yard touchdown interception by Jake Disterhaupt, but the Bobcats outscored UND 21-8 the remainder of the game for the victory. Brady Oliveira scored UND’s only other touchdown, a 34-yard run late in the third quarter. Montana State quarterback Chris Murray rushed for 132 yards and one touchdown and threw for 174 yards and three touchdowns. MSU (1-2, 1-0 BSC) finished with a 515 to 255 edge in total offense, with 341 of those coming on the ground. UND (1-3, 0-1 BSC) will return to league action next Saturday at UC Davis. (Check out more photos from Russ Hons here.)
