SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Jeff Fleming passed for two touchdowns and ran for two scores to help Sacramento State to a 42-28 win against Montana on Saturday night, the Hornets' first win in 17 meetings between the schools.

The Hornets broke it open in the third quarter, as Markell Williams returned a blocked punt 30 yards for a touchdown and Sam McCowan had a 42-yard scoring run.

Dan Moore rushed for 41 yards and two touchdowns and caught four passes for 66 yards for the Grizzlies (2-2, 1-1).

Bryan Hilliard ran for 100 yards on 22 carries for Sacramento State.
