PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Troy Anderson and Isaiah Ifanse for 311 yards rushing and four touchdowns as Montana State ran over Portland State, 43-23 at Hillsboro Stadium in the Big Sky Conference opener for both schools Saturday.

Anderson amassed 211 yards on 22 carries, two for touchdowns including a 66-yard run for a score at the end of the third quarter. He also found Kevin Kassis on a 53-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter. Ifanse ran for 100 yards and had two short touchdown runs in the first half.

The Bobcats (3-1, 1-0 Big Sky) finished with 323 yards on the ground and had five rushing touchdowns.

Davis Alexander was 15-of-27 passing for 212 yards and carried 18 times for 81 yards and two scores to lead Portland State (1-3, 0-1).

Because of scheduling difficulties at Providence Park, Portland State moved four of its five home games this season to Hillsboro Stadium, which is used primarily for high school sports.
