Montana Grizzlies (10-4)


FCS Playoff Review: Weber State 17, Montana 10

The Score - No. 3 seed Weber State (11-3) beat No. 6 seed Montana (10-4) 17-10 in the quarterfinals of the FCS playoffs.

Story Line - Weber State avenged a 35-16 loss to Montana in the Big Sky regular season to reach the national semifinals for the first time in its third straight quarterfinal. The Wildcats had five interceptions and six sacks against Griz quarterback Dalton Sneed just six days after the visitors scored 73 in a second-round win.

Game Balls - Sneed felt the wrath of Weber senior defensive end Adam Rodriguez, who had four sacks. The play of the game, though, was turned in by freshman Ja'Kobe Harris, who blocked a Brandon Purdy punt deep in Montana territory and fell on the ball in the Griz end zone for a touchdown which made it 17-7 with 9:41 left to play.
