After blowing out a nationally-ranked Northern Arizona team just a season ago, the Bears weren't a match for the Lumberjacks on Thursday.
An uninspiring performance on opening night for Missouri State (0-1) football led to a 37-23 loss Thursday against Northern Arizona in Flagstaff.

This loss comes after Missouri State defeated Northern Arizona 40-8 in Springfield just a season ago.
