Could this be the weekend that Missouri Southern State University snaps their 19-game losing streak? This past weekend against the Missouri Western Griffons Southern had their slimmest margin of defeat this season, a 33 to 10 loss. This weekend the Lions will travel up to Topeka, Kansas to take on what is sure to be a rowdy Homecoming crowd at Yagar Stadium. Adam Burns, Sports Reporter for the Joplin Globe takes a look back for positive developments from Southern’s loss and a look ahead to whether they can pull an upset in Kansas’ Capitol city.
