No. 12 Gorillas Bounce Back With 34-14 Road Win Over No. 4 Griffons

Updated:

Press Release Pittsburg State University: 

A week after being limited to 27 net rushing yards, 12th ranked Pittsburg State University pounded out 280 rushing yards en route to a 34-14 road win over No. 4 Missouri Western State University Saturday (Oct. 26) at Spratt Memorial Stadium.

The Gorillas (7-1, 6-1 MIAA) got a 24-carry, 179-yard rushing performance from Jeff Seybold, Jr. to spark the offense and help hand the Griffons (7-1, 6-1 MIAA) their first loss of the season.

Seybold scored on a 23-yard run with 11:27 to play in the second quarter to give Pitt State a 10-0 lead. His score was sandwiched in-between a pair of field goals by Connor Frazell. Frazell booted a 41-yard kick for a 3-0 lead at the 6:19 mark of the first quarter. He added a 22-yard field goal with one second remaining in the second quarter to give the Gorillas a 13-7 halftime advantage.

Jason Peete added a key defensive score early in the second half for the Gorillas. He blocked a 52-yard field goal attempt by John Schmiemeier and returned it 56 yards for a score and a 20-7 Gorillas advantage.

Seybold capped an eight-play, 71-yard drive with a three-yard touchdown run to make it 27-7 with 11:43 to play in the game.

Western countered with Travis Partridge tossing a 14-yard touchdown pass to Reggie Jordan -- the duo's second scoring connection of the game -- to make it 27-14 with 9:35 to go, but the Gorillas went 75 yards in three plays with Seybold scoring from six yards out for the game's final margin with 8:22 to go.

Tony Abenoja completed 13 of 25 passes for 191 yards in the game, including three strikes to Gavin Lutman that covered 88 yards.

Partridge completed 16 of 32 passes for 193 yards and two touchdowns with an interception. The Gorillas sacked Partridge four times in the contest.

Nate Dreiling made a team-leading 11 tackles for the Gorillas. Keeston Terry and Tyler Disney added seven tackles apiece, while Aries Herrion added six tackles and a key interception with 4:10 to play in the game.

Pitt State limited the Griffons to 312 total yards in the game. Western entered the game averaging 442 yards and 46.3 points per game.

The Gorillas will return to Carnie Smith Stadium to host Northwestern Oklahoma State University in a non-conference game next Saturday (Nov. 2).
