MISSOULA, Mont. -- Brady Gustafson threw for four touchdown passes, all in the first half, and Montana swamped Mississippi Valley State 67-7 on Saturday.
Gustafson completed 17 straight passes at one point in the first half, including scoring strikes covering 44 and 4 yards to Keenan Curran. The latter put the Grizzlies (4-1) up 43-7 with 41 seconds left in the second quarter. Gustafson finished 21 of 26 for 251 yards.
The Delta Devils (0-6) led 7-0 after an 88-yard drive to open the game, capped by a 3-yard run from quarterback Austin Bray. MVSU then took over at Montana's 30 after Gustafson fumbled on the Grizzlies' first drive.
But on the next play, Grizzlies linebacker Connor Strahm intercepted a Bray pass and sprinted 78 yards for the tying TD.
That started a run of 67 straight points. Montana took the lead for good on Colin Bingham's 8-yard TD reception with 8:21 left in the first. James Homan also hauled in a 4-yard TD pass, and Jeremy Calhoun added scoring runs covering 1 and 21 yards.
