EDS: FIXES typo in 2001 in 3rd graf.
MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) -- Cole Bergquist passed for 292 yards and a career-best four touchdowns and Lex Hilliard rushed for 112 yards and set the school's career rushing touchdown record Saturday in Montana's 52-7 win over Northern Colorado.
Montana (7-0, 4-0 Big Sky), ranked third in The Sports Network FCS poll, had 623 yards in total offense to 228 for Northern Colorado (0-8, 0-4) after three weeks of less-than-dominating wins that led to a fall from the No. 1 ranking.
Hilliard's second touchdown, a 39-yard run with 13:55 left in the fourth quarter gave Montana a 45-0 lead and gave Hilliard the school career rushing touchdown record with 44, one more than Yohance Humphery had from 1998-2001.
Mike Ferriter caught a 15-yard TD pass in the first quarter, Ryan Bagley added a 12-yarder early in the second quarter and Marc Mariani caught a 27-yarder one-handed in the rain with 5:35 left in the half to give Montana a 21-0 lead.
Hilliard's first touchdown was a 1-yard run with 1:36 left in the half.
Dan Carpenter kicked a 50-yard field goal and Bagley caught a 2-yard TD pass from Bergquist with 4:08 left in the third to put the Griz up 38-0.
Bergquist completed 26 of 35 passes and rushed eight times for another 50 yards.
Breazeale was 13-of-25 for 109 yards while Tyrone Wilson rushed nine times for 50 yards for the Bears.
