BOZEMAN, Mont. -- Cody Kirk rushed for a career-high 155 yards and two touchdowns, and DeNarius McGhee threw for two scores and ran for a third as Montana State routed future Big Sky Conference rival UC Davis 38-14 on Saturday.

The Bobcats (1-1) amassed 507 yards in total offense in front of a record 18,457 in newly expanded Bobcat Stadium. McGhee, who was 15-for-26 for 257 yards, hit Elvis Akpla for 21 yards and Kruiz Siewing on a 36-yard score before adding a 10-yard touchdown run to give Montana State a 28-7 halftime lead.

UC Davis (0-2) took a 7-0 lead on a 24-yard pass from Randy Wright to Tom Hemmingsen to complete an 82-yard drive in the first five minutes, but the Aggies couldn't muster much offense after that. UC Davis, now in the Great West Conference, will join the Big Sky next year.
