MORAGA, Calif. -- Travis Lulay passed for 187 yards and a touchdown and ran for another score Saturday as Montana State spoiled St. Mary's homecoming with a 40-0 victory.

"It was a thorough, convincing, solid, quality win," said MSU coach Mike Kramer. "It was a full team event. We're a good team and I thought we played like it today."

Bruce Molock, making his first start for the Bobcats (2-3) after transferring from Cal State Northridge last year, carried the ball 21 times for 150 yards and two more touchdowns. Molock scored on a 1-yard run in the first quarter and a 20-yard run in the second as MSU built a 23-0 halftime lead.

"I thought the offensive line played well throughout the day," Kramer said. "Bruce Molock gave us a solid performance. He finished runs. It was another outstanding day by Travis."

Lulay completed 13 of 22 passes, including a 25-yard scoring pass to Scott Turnquist early in the third quarter. He also scored on a 2-yard run in the first quarter after the Bobcats advanced the ball on a fake punt.

Lulay set up to punt the ball on a fourth-and-10 play from the MSU 48, but threw a 44-yard pass to Kane Ioane.

Lulay later did punt the ball 40 yards, while Roger Cooper and Joey Thomas scored on 2-point conversions after Molock's two scores.

Ioane also returned an interception 59 yards for a touchdown with 10:01 left in the third quarter. MSU wrapped up the scoring with a 34-yard field goal by Nate Cook with 3:35 left in the third.

St. Mary's (0-5) was held to only 163 yards in total offense -- 67 yards passing and 96 rushing -- while Montana State had 421 yards in total offense, including 234 yards rushing.

"The key thing is to be able to run for 234 yards," Kramer said. "You have to be able to do that on the road."

Cordell Webb, a freshman making only his second start for the Gaels, completed 10 of 17 passes for 47 yards and an interception, while rushing for 30 yards on 15 carries.

Clint Wilson, who was injured in the second quarter before returning in the final period, led the Gaels rushing with 34 yards on nine carries.
