BOZEMAN, Mont. -- Andrew Selle threw three touchdown passes, and top-ranked Montana dominated defensively en route to a 33-19 victory over No. 23 Montana State on Saturday.
Selle threw scoring strikes of 9 and 6 yards to Marc Mariani and added a 14-yarder to tight end Dan Beaudin for the Grizzlies (11-0, 8-0 Big Sky), who on Sunday will learn their first-round opponent in the Football Championship Series playoffs.
Montana held the Bobcats (7-4, 5-3) without a first down on eight consecutive possessions and built a 26-5 lead on Brody McKnight's 40-yard field goal with 14:44 remaining.
Selle was 17-for-22 passing for 163 yards, and backup Justin Roper was 7-for-13 with a 1-yard TD pass to Beaudin.
