The Bears did not get a first down until the first play of the 2nd quarter, but then put up 10 straight points to cut the deficit to 21-10. McGhee however put the Cats back up 28-10 with a 7-yard TD run with 2:33 to play before halftime.
MSU scored on six of its first eight possessions, scoring five touchdowns.
With the win, the Cats are now 4-0 on the season, and 1-0 in the Big Sky. They travel to Southern Utah next Saturday for their first conference road game. Kickoff is scheduled for 1:30 pm MDT.
