GREELEY, Colo. (AP) — Tommy Mellott was 15-of-19 passing for 217 yards and three touchdowns, Willie Patterson had seven grabs for 148 yards and three scores, and Montana State beat Northern Colorado 37-14 on Saturday.

Patterson wrestled away the ball from a defender in the end zone to give Montana State a 17-14 lead. On the first possession of the second half, Patterson caught a short pass and cut back two defenders to score from 37 yards out.

Patterson’s third TD was thrown by backup Sean Chambers, who also had a rushing touchdown and an interception.

Lane Sumner added 130 yards rushing, reaching 100 in all three games of his injury-riddled season, for Montana State (6-1, 4-0 Big Sky Conference). The Bobcats have won four straight games after a 68-28 loss to Oregon State.

Dylan McCaffrey was 34 of 50 for 278 yards with one touchdown and one interception for Northern Colorado (2-5, 1-3).
