BOZEMAN — Montana State quarterback Sean Chambers answered the call.
With Tommy Mellott inactive for Saturday's game due to a concussion sustained in Week 4, Chambers earned his first start with the Bobcats against UC Davis.
The Wyoming transfer had a career night for the Bobcats, throwing for 227 yards (13 for 21), while also rushing for 209 yards to help lead Montana State to a 41-24 victory over the Aggies.
Chambers' performance on the ground entered him into unchartered waters, becoming only the fifth Big Sky Conference quarterback to rush for over 200 yards in a single game.
His longest touchdown came on the Bobcats' second play of their opening drive with Chambers rolling off the right edge and breaking free 78 yards after a pair of blocks from Ravi Alston and Derryk Snell.
Montana State has another home game next Saturday against Idaho State, which is set to kick off at 2 p.m. MT.
