Associated Press

MACOMB, Ill. -- Ashton Glaser threw for one touchdown and rushed for two more as Missouri State posted a 38-27 victory and a season-high score against Western Illinois Saturday night.

Glaser threw a TD pass to Julian Burton for the first score of the game, and later ran in for a TD to end the first quarter. A short 1-yard TD run by Glaser late in the third gave the Bears (3-6, 3-2 MVC) a more comfortable lead at 35-20 after a touchdown by Western Illinois had brought the game within 8.

Trenton Norvell threw four touchdown passes spread between three receivers, accounting for every score for the Leathernecks (3-6, 1-4). Norvell ended with 269 yards passing and two interceptions.

Missouri State's Caleb Schaffitzel, named last week's MVC Defensive Player of the Week, ended Western Illinois' last possession with an interception in the fourth quarter for his third straight game.
