For the first time in over three decades, Missouri State has claimed a share of the Missouri Valley Football Conference and can call itself a champion.
No. 15 Missouri State (5-4, 5-1) ended the spring regular season with a 21-10 win over Youngstown State (1-6) on Saturday afternoon at Plaster Stadium.
The Bears have clinched at least a share of the MVFC for the first time since 1990. Whether the Bears will make the playoffs for the first time since the same season is still to be determined.
The win gives Missouri State a 5-1 record in the spring and one of the more impressive spring resumes in the FCS.
