Midwestern State gave the Lions all they could handle Saturday night in Wichita Falls. Despite their best efforts for a fourth quarter rally, the Mustangs handed the Lions their first loss of the season, 47-42.
Both teams started off slow in the first half, going 4 for 17 in third down completions; Lions were 1 for 7.
MSU eventually picked up momentum and got on the board first missing the point after, 6-0. They followed it up with a 4th down gamble that paid off with 11 minutes left in the first half, putting them up 13-0.
