Late TD pass lifts Missouri State past Indiana State 29-26
Missouri State (4-2, 2-1 Missouri Valley Conference) bounced back from a 35-28 road loss last week to South Dakota that snapped a three-game win streak. Indiana State (2-4, 0-3) has lost three straight games.
Ja’Quan Keys had 23 carries for 141 yards and scored the first of his three touchdowns on a 47-yard run in the second quarter for the Sycamores.
Indiana State trailed 21-10 at halftime but Keys had a pair of touchdown runs from inside the 10-yard that capped long scoring drives. Jerry Nunez’s 19-yard field goal then stretched the Sycamores’ lead 26-21 with 4:04 to play.
Missouri State had first-and-goal at the 5 with 54 seconds left. The Bears managed just one yard before Huslig’s game-winning throw on fourth down.
