In a game that Pittsburg State players and coaches alike referred to as a must-win situation, the Gorillas suffered their worst homecoming loss ever. In front of a record crowd, 16th ranked Missouri Western piled on 56 unanswered points in a 63-14 beat down at Carnie Smith Stadium.

Meanwhile in Joplin, the Lions struggled to sustain much offense against 5th ranked Northwest Missouri State. MoSo made it 14-7 on a short Kellen Cox TD in the 2nd quarter, but that's as close as it got.
