OGDEN, Utah -- C.J. Palmer scored the go-ahead touchdown on a 6-yard run early in the fourth quarter and Montana State stopped a late fourth-and-goal at the 1-yard line to beat Weber State 26-21 Saturday.

Aaron Mason ran for 138 yards and two touchdowns, while Palmer finished with 45 yards and a pair of touchdowns for the Bobcats (3-1 overall, 2-0 Big Sky). Montana State has won six straight meetings between the teams on the Wildcats? home field.

The Wildcats (2-3, 2-1) had a chance to win the game, but the Bobcats wrapped up Bo Bolen for a 4-yard loss on fourth-and-goal at the 1 with 28 seconds left.

Weber State took a 21-20 lead late in the third quarter on a 16-yard touchdown pass from Cameron Higgins to Mike Phillips. The pair hooked up earlier on a 68-yard scoring play that put Weber State up 15-14 late in the second quarter.
