TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) -- Jon Scifres kicked a 38-yard field goal
with three seconds remaining, lifting Southwest Missouri State to a
31-28 victory over Indiana State on Saturday night.
The Sycamores (4-3, 1-2 Gateway) tied the game with 23 seconds
to go on a 15-yard touchdown run by Phillip Johnson, but the Bears
(5-2, 2-1) set up Scifres' winning kick with a 61-yard return by
Scottie Reddix on the ensuing kickoff.
Cody Pratt then rushed 6 yards to the Indiana State 21, and
after two timeouts, Scifres hit the game-winner.
