For the UNC football team, junior Dave Eden’s performance was a bright spot during the team’s 41-16 defeat against No. 2 Montana State in Bozeman, Mont.
Eden now holds the Division I record for the University of Northern Colorado (1-3, 0-1 Big Sky) for career PAT (point after touchdown) with 51, previously held by Michael York (2006-09).
Eden also had three field goals, which was a career high and tied the Bears’ DivisionI record.
Montana State (4-0, 1-0) scored three unanswered touchdowns in the first quarter. UNC first got on the board with Eden’s 40-yard field goal. UNC junior quarterback Seth Lobato connected with sophomore wide receiver Dimitri Stimphil on a 10-yard pass. Eden’s record breaking extra point put the score at 21-10 in the Bobcat’s favor.
A touchdown and field goal later, Montana State led the Bears 31-10 before Eden kicked a 42 yarder with no time remaining in the half.
The Bobcats would go on to win, 41-16. For a full recap, pick up a copy of The Mirror Monday.
