Fresh off its stoutest performance to date of the 2015 season, Montana State’s defense found itself with a 7-0 lead less than two minutes into its contest against surging Portland State last October.
The previous week, the Bobcats stonewalled Sacramento State, holding the Hornets to three second-half points and notching three sacks, including a hit by defensive tackle Taylor Sheridan that took Sac quarterback Kolney Cassel out of the game.
At that point in Montana State’s season, the Bobcats were 3-2, including 2-1 in league play with each conference win going hand in hand with a decent defensive performance. MSU’s other losses were to explosive Eastern Washington (55-50), the top passing attack in the FCS, and upstart Northern Arizona, a suddenly explosive offense that hung 49 points on MSU.
