SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- After hope and potential to pull out a season that would lead to the playoffs, the Bears season came to an end Saturday after a loss to Northern Iowa.

The Missouri State Bears started their season August 29th against Northwestern State.

They lost 23-17 and would go on to lose 4 straight games.

But on a rainy game against a 24th-ranked Illinois State, the Bears would win at home. 37-10.

The Bears then would have a turnaround no one saw coming.

They go on to win 4 straight games including this 37-27 win at Southern Illinois.

But it all came to an end yesterday as Northern Iowa forced five Bears turnovers in their 17-10 win.

So what does that mean for the Bears future?

"I would love to coach here,” says Terry Allen, the Bears football coach. “I think there are some great times ahead as far as this university is concerned. You know this is the first game that we have lost since the students have shown their support of us. Perceptions are very, very important. I think we got a lot of very good football players coming back. You had two of them in here. It's going to be tough to lose the 21 others but I would like to go again."

The Bears finished their season with a 5-7 record and went 5-3 in the conference.

Terry Allen’s future with the Bears will be decided in the upcoming weeks.

The top-seeded Missouri State soccer team played in the Missouri Valley Conference Championships Sunday.

They faced Bradley after waiting roughly three hours because of a weather delay.

MSU tries to get something going in the last couple ticks of the game, but they can't get it to go. Time expires.

Bradley wins 1-0. They win the MVC and will advance the National Championship Tournament.
