  Logan Jones ran for 167 yards and two touchdowns and Montana State defeated Western Illinois 23-14 on Saturday. Jones, a senior who more than doubled his career rushing total of 152 yards, started in place of injured Isaiah Ifanse. Jones opened the scoring with a 14-yard run in the first quarter and added MSU's only other touchdown on an 87-yard jaunt in the third quarter. The game was tied at 7 at halftime before MSU (No. 15 in FCS Coaches' Poll) scored the first 10 points of the third quarter, the touchdown coming on Jones' long run. Western Illinois cut it to 17-14 on a 3-yard run by Jared Drake that capped an 8-play, 75-yard drive.

Western Illinois (0-3) drove toward a go-ahead score and reached the MSU 25 before the Bobcats' Damien Washington intercepted a pass by Connor Sampson. Montana State (2-1) drove deep into Leathernecks territory but WIU held for a field goal and again drove for the potential go-ahead score. The Leathernecks reached the MSU 13-yard line, but offensive holding and two incomplete passes left them facing 4th-and-14 from the 18. They settled for a 35-yard field-goal attempt that was missed by Nathan Erickson. Montana State took possession with 6:57 remaining and drove to the WIU 30, facing 4th-and-5 with 2:45 to go. Tristan Bailey, who was good on all three of his tries, kicked a 47-yard field goal for the final margin. Sampson was 18 of 35 for 281 yards with a touchdown and an interception. MSU's Casey Bauman was 16 of 30 for 149 yards. - AP College Football

  After going into the half tied, then-No. 19 Montana State came out strong to start the third quarter. Following 28 unanswered points, the Bobcats had done everything they needed to do to secure the 38-17 upset victory over then-No. 13 Southeast Missouri State. The Bobcats win propelled them up four spots to No. 15 in this weeks' AFCA FCS Coaches' Top 25 Poll. North Dakota State received all 26 first place votes and remained the No. 1 team in the nation. The rest of the top five also remained unchanged with James Madison, South Dakota State, UC Davis and Eastern Washington sitting at spots two through five.

This week saw two teams jump into the top 25 for the first time this season. Villanova checks in at No. 23 following their 38-10 victory over Lehigh to improve to 2-0 on the season. Southeastern Louisiana checks in at No. 24 following an unexpected off-week due to Hurricane Dorian and will be back in action on September 14 at Mississippi. Week 3 features a trio of top 25 matchups as No. 1 North Dakota State travels to No. 18t Delaware. No. 5 Eastern Washington will also hit the road and travel to Alabama to take on No. 16 Jacksonville State. Last but not least, No. 9 Maine will look to bounce back against No. 8 Towson in a Colonial Athletic Association matchup. - American Football Coaches Association

  Troy Andersen ran for two touchdowns and had two tackles for loss to lead Montana State to a 38-17 win over Southeast Missouri State on Saturday night. After an error-filled first half, the Bobcats (1-1) scored 28 points in the third quarter accumulating 240 yards in the process. Andersen ran for 102 yards on just six carries. Isaiah Ifanse had 114 yards rushing in the first half, but sat out the second half with an undisclosed injury. "He's a special, selfless dude," MSU wide receiver Kevin Kassis said of Andersen. "We wouldn't be the same without him."

MSU, which came into the game one-spot behind SEMO at No. 13 in the FCS poll, got off to a hot start with Andersen running for a 38-yard touchdown on the Bobcats second play of the game. The Bobcats drove 63 yards for a field goal on their second possession, but struggled for the rest of the half. SEMO scored after picking up a fumbled snap on a punt attempt. The Redhawks (1-1) found the end zone three plays later when Daniel Santacaterina hit Kristian Wilkerson with a 5-yard pass. Kendrick Tiller connected on a 55-yard field goal for the Redhawks with no time remaining that tied the game 10-10 at halftime that was set up by a roughing the quarterback penalty. - AP College Football

  2019 PRESEASON STATS FCS PAYTON AWARD WATCHLIST: Troy Andersen, Montana State, ATH, Jr., 6-3, 215,...Andersen earned First Team All-Big Sky honors at quarterback in 2018, and was named to the 2019 Preseason All-Big Sky team as a fullback. The Payton Award Watch List calls Andersen's position Athlete, which MSU head coach Jeff Choate says is appropriate. "I've talked about this," he said, "but we have to open our minds to not putting Troy in a box. We're going to use him (on offense) in ways that he'll be able to positively impact any given game the most. He could line up at running back, he'll take some snaps, he may play with Isaiah (Ifanse) in two-back sets, he may line up at tight end, he may split out as a receiver."

A 6-4, 228 lb junior from Dillon, Montana, Andersen also opens the 2019 as the projected starting Sam linebacker. He rushed for 1,412 yards and threw for 1,195 last season, and his 21 rushing touchdowns in 2018 set an MSU single-season record. His 1,927 rushing yards is already 12th in Bobcat history. He is one of five Big Sky Conference selections on the 25-player list. - Montana State Football

  2019 PRESEASON ALL-BIG SKY FOOTBALL TEAM: FB: Troy Andersen, Jr., Montana State,...It may be a new year and a different position, but Montana State's Troy Andersen enters 2019 with the same expectations for Troy Andersen. Montana State's star who enters the 2019 season projected as a fullback on offense and a linebacker on defense was one of five Bobcats selected for the Preseason All-Big Sky Conference Team, announced Monday.

Andersen's likely offensive role aligns him with Isaiah Ifanse, who set MSU's freshman rushing record last season, in the backfield. Fourth-year head coach Jeff Choate likes the possibilities. "Troy is a dynamic player," Choate said of his star junior, "and it's incumbent on us as coaches to find ways for him to impact games the most. That may be as a running back in a two-back set, in a one-back set, as a tight end, as a receiver. He gives us opportunities and options." Andersen is listed as MSU's starting Sam linebacker entering 2019, as well. - Montana State Football

Some Scouts think the former 3* Washington transfer is too stiff for OLB. We'll see and know more off Road grades/updates in the fall. Sterk is up there in the mix for top FCS defenseive end, Day 3 before underlassmen factor in.

  2019 PRESEASON ALL-BIG SKY FOOTBALL TEAM: S: Brayden Konkol, Sr., Montana State,...Three Bobcats made the defensive squad, two from a secondary that returns intact in 2019. Safety Brayden Konkol led the Cats with 93 tackles. "One of our strengths this season is experience across the board," Choate said. "Having experience in the secondary is such a positive, and Munchie (Filer), Brayden, Jahque (Alleyne, at safety), Tyrel Thomas and Damien Washington have all had success as starters. Bryce Sterk is a dynamic pass rusher, and that combination, pass rush and coverage, gives you a chance for success." - Montana State Football

I look forward to Mitch having a great senior season." - Montana State Football

  Jason Scrempos, a defensive lineman from the University of Washington, has joined the Montana State football program as a graduate transfer, MSU coach Jeff Choate announced Thursday. Originally from Milpitas, California, Scrempos redshirted at UW in 2015 and played on the Huskies' defensive line from 2016-18. Scrempos played in eight games, getting a tackle against BYU in 2018. He was a MaxPreps All-Northern California selection as a senior at Milpitas High in 2014. He was the Santa Clara Valley Athletic League De Anza Division Defensive Lineman of the Year in 2014, leading his league in sacks and finishing with 55 tackles. He notched a dozen sacks with 99 total tackles as a junior. Scrempos also earned honorable mention all-league honors in basketball, and threw the shot and discus for the track team.

"Jason played on Pac 12 Championship teams at the University of Washington," Choate said. "We expect him to have an immediate impact for us, and solidify the interior defensive line. He's 6-6, 300 pounds, and he can play the nose or tackle. Jason played at a high level in high school and is familiar with our system, and he adds immediate pop to our defense. We're very excited to add Jason to our program." Scrempos comes to MSU with one season of eligibility remaining. - Montana State Football
