First quarter

UND 7, Missouri State 0, 12:40 left: After Missouri State starts with a three-and-out on offense, UND counters with three straight Otis Weah runs for a first down at midfield. On first-and-10 from the 50, Tommy Schuster goes deep down the sideline to Garett Maag, who was wide open, for a touchdown catch.

UND 14, Missouri State 3, 3:18 left: Missouri State finds a little bit of offensive rhythm for the first time but stalls in the red zone thanks to a third-down sack by UND linebacker Josh Navratil. MSU's Joe Pizano hits a 28-yard field goal.

Second quarter

UND 17, Missouri State 3, 14:22 left: Adam Stage 31-yard field goal. UND picks up some nice yards on a Garett Maag bubble screen and a Bo Belquist tunnel screen but a Maag reverse backfires and UND has to settle for three.

UND 24, Missouri State 3, 9:55 left: After Missouri State goes for fourth-and-1 on its own 35 and is stuffed on a run up the middle by Noah Larson, UND counters with a heavy dose of Otis Weah, who scores on a 6-yard run up the middle on second-and-goal from the 6.

Third quarter

UND 31, Missouri State 3, 9:21 left: Missouri State started a drive on the 1 after UND's Jake Richter fumbled a fourth-down catch. That set up a tough punt out of the end zone, which was blocked by the Fighting Hawks. The fluttering punt went about 20 yards to linebacker Hayden Reynolds, who returned the ball for a score.

UND 37, Missouri State 3, 6:31 left: Missouri State finds some offensive rhythm with backup quarterback Jaden Johnson. But the Bears need to put Matt Struck back in at quarterback as Johnson's helmet comes off after a run. On Struck's first play back, UND safety Hayden Galvin intercepts a pass over the middle and returns it about 90 yards for a touchdown. UND missed the extra point.

Fourth quarter

UND 37, Missouri State 10, 12:20 left: Jaden Johnson's 8-yard touchdown run on fourth-and-goal results in Missouri State's first touchdown.

UND 44, Missouri State 10, 2:17 left: After a 23-yard run for backup UND quarterback Quincy Vaughn, Creighton Mitchell runs one into the end zone from 19 yards out.
