MISSOULA, Mont. — Freshman Alex Vega made a 49-yard field goal with four seconds remaining, and Cal Poly defeated Montana 20-19 in a nonconference football game Saturday night at Washington-Grizzly Stadium.
The Gilroy native had not attempted a kick all night but delivered in the biggest moment, sending the Mustangs to their second straight win over Montana.
“The G-rated version was, ‘just don’t screw up,’ ” Vega said of the winning kick. “I was confident that I could make that kick and I’m just happy that coach (Tim) Walsh gave me the opportunity to take it.”
