SPRINGFIELD, Mo--The Missouri State Bears won their third straight game Saturday dismantling Indiana State.
It was the Bears first win over the Sycamores in three years.
In our Bear Nation report, the MSU defensive secondary stepped up big time setting a new school record.
Terry Allen's Bears and Sycamores tied at seven in the second quarter when the Bears roared ahead for good, Kierra Harris hits Eric Christophel with this 28 yard touchdown it's 14-7 Missouri State.
Then Harris opens the third quarter with this three yard touchdown to make it 21-7 Bears.
That's when the Missouri State d-backs would go to town, Rique Bentley starts it off with this 53 yard interception for a touchdown it's 28-7.
Next Indiana State possession Mike Perish is picked off by Jeremy Springer he takes it back 51 yards for a touchdown 35-7.
Missouri state not done Sybhrian Berry picks off Perish again this time he takes it back 73 yards and it's 42-7 Bears.
The three pick six's sets a new Missouri State record.
And the Bears beat Indiana State 49-seven.
Rique Bentley/MSU Linebacker:"It felt good at first that everyone else on the team getting a pick.  That's what the defense is for to try to get turnovers.  And we achieved our goal this week."
Kierra Harris/MSU Quarterback:"Who needs offense when the defense can score all those points.  I hear them preach everyday that turnovers are key.  If you win the turnover battle, you'll be in the game."
Terry Allen/MSU Coach:"I'm not sure that I've seen that many picks on one quarter.  And they were all down our sideline so it was kind of fun to watch."
