Arkansas State Dominates Montana State 37-10
JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) - Michael Gordon, Terrance Hollingsworth and Johnston White each ran for touchdowns Saturday to help Arkansas State notch a 37-10 season-opening win over Montana State for new head coach Blake Anderson.

Fredi Knighten broke it open late in the third quarter with a 23-yard pass to Dario Griswold to make it 23-10, then Hollingsworth and White each scored on short runs. Knighten was 19 for 29 for 219 yards passing and ran for 104 yards on 15 carries.

The Red Wolves' defense stepped up after Anthony Knight tied it at 7 and held the Bobcats to three-and-outs for the remainder. Arkansas State gained 558 total yards to 228 for MSU.

Leading Montana State rusher Shawn Johnson was sidelined after being speared on the second-half kickoff by Frankie Jackson, who was disqualified for an illegal hit.

Luke Ferguson kicked field goals of 29, 23 and 41 yards for Arkansas State.

Wyoming Beats Montana 17-12 Under New Coach
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - Shaun Wick rushed for 134 yards and a touchdown and the Wyoming defense was stout as the Cowboys beat Montana 17-12 Saturday in their first game under new head coach Craig Bohl.

D.J. May added 96 yards and a score for Wyoming (1-0), which has beaten Montana in all 14 of their matchups.

Of the 301 total yards gained by the Cowboys in the game, 209 came on the ground during the game, which was delayed twice by lightning for a total of about an hour.

Wyoming's defense held the Grizzlies (0-1) to 253 total yards, including just 42 rushing.

Quarterback Jordan Johnson completed 24 of 45 passes for 185 yards and one touchdown for Montana, a Football Championship Subdivision school.

Bohl was hired last December after leading North Dakota State to three consecutive FCS national championships.
