Coming off a big road win at South Dakota State, No. 7 ranked Illinois State returns home for its final regular-season contest at Hancock Stadium when the Redbirds host the Missouri State Bears on Senior Day.

 

Missouri State (1-8, 1-5 MVFC) fell behind 30-0 midway through last Saturday's matchup at Southern Illinois which proved to be the difference in a 37-14 defeat at the hands of the Salukis.

 

The last two wins for the Redbirds have happened because the 'Birds took advantage of turnovers and turned them into scoring opportunities. In ISU's last two wins, it has collected nine turnovers and turned those into 29 points in a pair of road victories.

 

Kick time from Hancock Stadium is noon.
