Mitchell Gale threw his third touchdown pass of the game to Taylor Gabriel with 13:03 remaining, and Morgan Lineberry's kick shortened the MSU lead to 49-21. The 8-play, 77-yard drive took 2:27 off the clock.

ACU's onside kick was recovered by Chris Summers at its own 43-yard line, but the Wildcats not take advantage.

MSU upped hits lead to 56-21 with 8:47 left when Keidrick Jackson ran 2 yards for another TD. Saladino's PAT was good.

ACU answered back in a quick drive, helped by Charcandrick West's 43-yard run with 7:47 left – a one-minute, six-play, 80-yard drive. Lineberry's kick made it 56-28.

MSU did not change gears, only players. Peter Smith ran 1 yard for another TD with 2:20 left, and Vernon Johnson caught a 99-yard scoring pass from backup quarterback Jake Glover with 56 seconds remaining.
