Montana St. had a bye in the first round of the FCS playoffs, their last game was a victory over the rival Montana Grizzlies.

Stony Brook ran the ball at will in the Villanova game, but the Montana St. defense will provide a sterner test. They rank No 7 in FCS against the run, making them a tough test for Miguel Maysonet and Marcus Coker. The pair combined for 267 yards in the Villanova game while the Seawovles were without regular starting quarterback Kyle Essington. Essington is still questionable with a thigh contusion, if he can't go it will be a second start for Lyle Negron.
