Pittsburgh's late rally falls short as North Carolina escapes with 34-27 win

Jordan Canada rushed for a career-high 189 yards and two touchdowns to lead Montana to a 42-6 win over Weber State on Saturday.

The Grizzlies (9-2, 5-2 Big Sky) piled up 461 yards of total offense, with John Nguyen, Marlon Miles and Shay Smithwick-Hann each rushing for a TD. Cam Warren caught a 5-yard touchdown pass from Jordan Johnson to put Montana on the scoreboard in the first quarter with a lead it would never relinquish.

Johnson suffered a concussion and didn't play in the second half.

Weber State (1-10, 0-7) had three first-half turnovers, including two interceptions from quarterback Austin Chipoletti. The only Wildcat scoring came from kicker Shaun McClain, who hit two field goals for the Wildcats, including a 48 yard field goal as time expired in the first half to cut the Grizzlies lead, 14-6.

Canada responded with an 80-yard TD run to open the third quarter.
