BOZEMAN — Montana State sophomore Troy Andersen has shown his development at quarterback as the season has progressed, but now the Bobcats might be heading into their toughest road stretch yet.

The Bobcats will be at Weber State on Saturday and, in preparation, must get back to the basics to combat what the Wildcats do best: force turnovers.

“It could be a one-possession game at the end, and if you turn the ball over one time during the game, that could be the difference,” Andersen said in a press conference on Tuesday. “Ball security is the premium, and we have to take care of the ball and make good decisions with it.”

And how exactly do the Bobcats prepare to face a Weber State defense that has forced 18 turnovers in five games?

“We do ball-security drills every Tuesday and then a turnover circuit on Thursdays — for the defense to get turnovers, for us to prevent them,” Andersen added.

The Bobcats will be in Ogden, Utah on Saturday to face Weber State. Kickoff is scheduled for 4 p.m.
