No. 16 Missouri Western used big plays and Pittsburg State miscues to notch a 63-14 victory over the No. 7 Gorillas before a record PSU homecoming crowd of 11,910 in Pittsburg.

Pittsburg State scored on the opening drive, going 87 yards and scoring when quarterback Tony Abenoja passed six yards to John Brown.

The Griffons tied it with a 48-yard strike from quarterback Travis Partridge to running back Michael Hill.

Partridge added a 64-yard scoring pass to Derek Libby for a 14-7 lead, and defensive end David Bass intercepted a batted ball and returned it 55 yards for a touchdown and a 21-7 margin.

Partridge added two more touchdown tosses in the second quarter, one after Missouri Western had halted a Pitt State drive by recovering a fumble.

After PSU scored first, Missouri Western scored 56 straight points.

Pitt State’s Nate Dreiling was in on eight tackles and recorded a half-sack.

PSU’s Brown had a career-best 13 catches for 153 yards.
