Raiders claim at least a share of Frontier title

Southern Oregon clinched at least a share of the Frontier Conference football title Saturday with a 44-19 home win over Montana Western.

The victory lifted the No. 7 Raiders to 8-0 with two games left. No. 11 Montana Tech fell to 6-2 with a 30-27 loss to Rocky Mountain College.

The Raiders will likely clinch the title next Saturday when they play MSU-Northern in Havre.

Southern Oregon was the only home team in the Frontier Conference to pick up a win on Saturday. The College of Idaho went to Eastern Oregon to beat the Mountaineers 38-20, while Carroll College won 59-7 at Northern.

In other games next week, Tech heads to the College of Idaho, Eastern Oregon plays at Rocky, and Western travels to Carroll.
