Bozeman, Mont. • QB Aaron Cantu ran for two touchdowns Saturday night to give Southern Utah enough of a lead to hold off a late rally by Montana State and win 22-14.
Cantu threw for just 88 yards and only ran for six, but was able to score two of Southern Utah's three touchdowns, both off a 1-yard rush. Chris Robinson scored the other touchdown for the Thunderbirds (8-3, 5-2 Big Sky) with a 5-yard rush in the final minute before the half.
The Bobcats (7-4, 5-2), who were held to 87 yards rushing, didn't score until the fourth. DeNarius McGhee finished 20 of 29 for 196 yards, but was only 4 of 9 for four yards by the end of the third quarter.
