Auburn Mountainview alum Gresch Jensen threw for a career-high 423 yards and three touchdowns, leading No. 24 Montana to a 41-17 Big Sky Conference football victory over North Dakota in Missoula, Mont., last Saturday.

Jensen, a 6-foot-2, 218-pound freshman quarterback who was making his fourth start, accounted for 459 yards of total offense, adding a rushing touchdown as the Grizzlies improved to 3-1 in the conference, 5-2 overall.

Two of Jensen’s TD throws went to Keenan Curran, a Federal Way product.

“Definitely (feel) a lot better after the game,” said Jensen, who was 23 of 35 passing with two interceptions. “We’ll take the win. I was just a lot more comfortable.”

The Grizzlies withstood three first-quarter turnovers by Jensen and pushed to a 20-3 halftime lead over the Fighting Hawks (2-5, 1-3), the defending Big Sky champions.

Montana has this week off before heading to Ogden, Utah, to play No. 16 Weber State on Oct. 28.
