William & Mary Tribe (11-2)


Montana State routs William & Mary, 55-7 to reach FCS semis

BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) Tommy Mellott ran for three touchdowns and threw for a fourth and Isaiah Ifanse ran for 162 yards and two scores as Montana State drilled William & Mary, 55-7 in a Football Championship Subdivision quarterfinal game on a 17-degree Friday night.

The Bobcats (12-1) advance to the semifinals and a potential rematch with South Dakota State, which faces Holy Cross in a quarterfinal match-up Saturday. Montana State knocked off the Jackrabbits, 31-17 in a semifinal matchup in 2021 and advanced to face North Dakota State for the national title before losing.

Mellott spearheaded an offense that posted 473 yards of total offense, 328 of it on the ground. Montana State's defense forced William & Mary to punt 10 times and the Bobcats' punt-return squad had 143 yards and a touchdown on a 79-yard return by Taco Dowler.
