TERRE HAUTE, Ind. -- Cody Kirby tied the game with a touchdown pass on the final play of regulation and scored the winning touchdown on a 19-yard run in overtime, giving Missouri State a 27-24 victory Saturday and handing Indiana State its second straight winless season.

The Sycamores (0-12, 0-8) Missouri Valley) suffered their 26th straight loss over three seasons, despite a career-high 237 yards rushing and two touchdowns by Darrius Gates.

Gates' second touchdown tied the game at 14 early in the fourth quarter, then a 1-yard TD run by Ryan Roberts put Indiana state ahead 21-14 with 46 seconds left. But Missouri State (4-7, 3-5) came right back and scored the tying touchdown on Kirby's 19-yard TD pass to Chris Geisz on the final play of regulation.

In the overtime, the Sycamores got the ball first and went ahead 24-21 on a 39-yard field goal by Baulio Martinez before Kirby's winning touchdown run.

The Bears' first two touchdowns were on runs of 16 yards by Miguel Warren in the first quarter and 2 yards by Kingjack Washington in the second period.
