SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - Zach Drake kicked a 32-yard field goal with 10 seconds left in the game to cap Missouri State’s 38-35 come-from-behind win over Southern Illinois on Saturday.

Trailing 21-7 at the break, Missouri State (4-4, 2-3 Missouri Valley Conference) dominated the second half. The Bears closed to 28-21 going into the final quarter. Deion Holliman returned a punt 57 yards to tie with 10:46 remaining.

The Salukis (2-6, 0-5) answered when Josh Straughan hit Israel Lamprakes on a 54-yard scoring strike on the next series. That held up until Lambert passed to Zac Hoover for a score from the 36 to tie it up again. The Missouri State defense held and the Bears drove 52 yards to set up Drake’s winning boot.

Lambert threw for 339 yards and four touchdowns. Hoover hauled in five of those for 150 yards and two scores.

Straughan had 315 yards passing with two scores for the Salukis.
