Villanova wins FCS title

Matt Szczur gained 227 yards from scrimmage and scored two touchdowns, as Villanova dominated play in the second half to secure its first ever FCS title with a 23-21 victory over previously unbeaten Montana at Finley Stadium.

The second-seeded Wildcats (14-1), playing in their first FCS Championship Game, found a ton of success on the ground in rainy conditions, amassing 351 rushing yards compared to just 60 for the Grizzlies (14-1).

Szczur rushed for a career-high 159 of those yards on 14 carries, adding 68 yards on four catches.

Chris Whitney added 102 yards on 16 touches while connecting on 10-of-13 throws for 142 yards with a touchdown and an interception for the champions.
