Montana defeats Appalachian State 24-17
Junior running back Chase Reynolds rushed for 193 yards and two touchdowns as The first/third-ranked University of Montana Grizzlies defeated the fifth-ranked Appalachian State Mountaineers 24-17 in a NCAA Football Championship Subdivision semifinal game in front of 24,207 fans on a chilly, snowy Saturday afternoon day in UMs Washington-Grizzly Stadium.

ASU took its first lead of the contest with 5:16 remaining until halftime when Vitaris connected on a 46-yard field goal. The Mountaineers led 10-7 at intermission.

The Grizzlies regained the lead at the 13:22 mark of the third stanza, Reynolds scoring on a 7-yard run, making it 14-10 Grizzlies. But, ASU countered with a touchdown of its own, Moore scoring from one yard out with 3:52 left in the third quarter. The Mountaineers go-ahead touchdown was set up when middle linebacker Jacque Roman intercepted a Selle pass and returned it 34 yards to the 50-yard line.

The Grizzlies tied the score at 17-all with 14:50 left to play, as McKnight hit a 32-yard field goal.

The Mountaineers had a chance to regain the lead on their next possession but Vitaris missed the 44-yard field goal try, and Montana took over on it own 27-yard line and proceeded to make its game-winning drive.

Reynolds rushed 23 times for 193 yards (his 15th career 100-yard rushing game), and his two touchdown runs give him 24 total TDs for the season (22 rushing, 2 receiving), breaking the mark of 23 that he set last season. He also has 144 points this year, breaking the single-season record 138 points that he also set a year ago.
