The MSU-Northern Lights fell to 1-6 on the season after being drubbed by Rocky Mountain College 52-3 Saturday afternoon.
The story of the game was a familiar one for the Lights: turnovers, unsustained drives offensively, and giving up big plays on defense.
Many of those big plays came against the run as the Battlin' Bears rushed for 372 yards.
Northern was also outgained in total yards 536 to 255.
After the game head coach Aaron Christensen stressed the importance of finishing.
"I think we're improving, I think we're getting a little better, to me that game was just them running the ball on us," he said in regards to Rocky rushing for 372 yards. "We got to do a better job of stopping them and getting some three and outs. On offense we just need to finish drives. When we do move the ball we have to make sure it ends in points."
The Lights' next game October 21 in Butte against Montana Tech.
