  Montana State freshman quarterback Tommy Mellott accounted for four touchdowns to send the Bobcats to their first title game in 38 years with a 31-17 win over South Dakota State in a Football Championship Series semifinal game on Saturday. Montana State (12-2) will make its first national championship appearance since 1984, facing North Dakota State in Frisco, Texas on Jan. 8. The Bison beat James Madison 20-14 on Friday night. Mellott was 10-of-15 passing for 233 yards and threw two touchdown passes.

He added 155 yards on the ground and two touchdowns on 34 carries. "He's a great player, runs the ball hard," South Dakota State linebacker Logan Backhaus said. "He makes the right reads and doesn't make mistakes." The Bobcats scored first when Mellott hit Nate Stewart for a 64-yard score, but South Dakota State (11-4) bounced back to take a 14-10 lead when Pierre Strong Jr. rambled 44 yards for a touchdown and Chris Oladokun connected with Jadon Janke from the 13 for the lead. Mellott ran for a 4-yard touchdown before SDSU's Cole Frahm kicked a 51-yard field goal to tie the game at 17 going into halftime. Mellott became the Bobcats main ball carrier when Isaiah Ifanse was ruled out due to injury. - Montana State/AP College Football

  Tommy Mellott accounted for five touchdowns to help Montana State beat No. 1 seed Sam Houston 42-19 on Saturday night in the quarterfinals of the FCS playoffs and snapped the Bearkats' 22-game win streak. Eighth-seeded Montana State (11-2), which did not participate in the spring season brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, plays South Dakota State - which upset No. 5 seed Villanova in another quarterfinal game - next weekend. The Bobcats also advanced to the semifinals in 2019 before losing 42-14 to eventual-champion North Dakota State. South Dakota State lost to the Bearkats in last May's championship game.

Mellott and Lance McCutcheon connected on a 30-yard pass and the Bearkats called for face mask and pass interference penalties before wide receiver Willie Patterson took a direct snap, rolled to his right and threw a 4-yard scoring pass to Mellott. Four plays later, after Tre Webb intercepted a pass by Sam Houston's Eric Schmid, Mellott dropped a 31-yard TD pass over the shoulder of tightly-covered Patterson's shoulder to make it 14-0 with 11:43 left in the first quarter. Mellott added a 1-yard touchdown run early in the second and scored on a 2-yard run to give the Bobcats a 28-0 lead with 7:46 left in the first half. - AP College Football

  Freshman quarterback Tommy Mellott ran for 183 yards, Isaiah Infanse added 176 yards, and Montana State dominated UT Martin on Saturday, defeating the Skyhawks 26-7 in a second-round game of the FCS playoffs. Montana State outgained UT Martin 438 yards to 178 yards and kept the Skyhawks offense out of the end zone. The Skyhawks' only score was a 68-yard fumble return by Jay Woods. Mellott's 1-yard run was the first score of the game and the Bobcats took a 10-7 halftime lead. His breakaway 73-yard scoring run in the fourth quarter put MSU ahead 19-7 and Infanse added a 17-yard run for the final score.

No. 8-seed Montana State (10-2) advanced to the quarterfinals against top-seed Sam Houston, which defeated Incarnate Word 49-42 on Saturday. UT Martin's Dresser Winn completed only 13 of 27 passes for 98 yards and Peyton Logan led the Skyhawks (10-3) with 71 yards rushing. The game featured UT Martin's stingy run defense (129 yards per game) against Montana State's potent rushing attack (219 ypg). However, the Bobcats were dominant on the ground, with 186 yards in the first half and 387 for the game. Mellott completed 8 of 20 passes for 51 yards. Linebacker Callahan O'Reilly led the MSU defense with 10 tackles, six solo. - Montana State/AP College Football
