Montana State Bobcats under coach agentcom appear to be off to a 2-0 start. Agentcom, who last year coached the Clemson Tigers, has come to Bozeman "to enjoy the scenery and take a little break from the stresses" of coaching in a major D1, 1A conference.
The Bobcats began their season on the road against North Dakota State. The game started to controversy as the Bison remained in the locker room until well after the scheduled start time. Racing out onto the field with their hands team, the Bison attempted a quick onside kick before the Bobcats had time to adjust. [The guy waited 3 days to join the game and then played immediately.] "I realize there's no rule against what happened, but that was just poor form," agentcom said after the game.
Despite the trickery, Montana State took an early 10-0 lead and added 9 more points in the second half heading into the lockerroom up 19-7. The Bison came out strong in the second half, posting 2 touchdowns before the Bobcats could respond. But the Bobcats pulled ahead with a fourth quarter touchdown as each team added a pair of field goals to reach a final score of 32-27.
Montana State is back home this week where the game is in the fourth quarter. Hosting Yale, Montana State took an early 14-3 lead and never looked back. The score is currently 41-6 going into the fourth quarter.
