MSU Football Field

In this month's Engaging the Community, KSMU's Jennifer Moore talks with MSU President Clif Smart about the university's winning football season and what that means for a wider community.

For the first time in over 30 years, Missouri State University’s football team is making headlines for winning. As of Saturday, with a win over Youngstown State at home, the Bears earned their share as the Missouri Valley Football conference champions.

They had a winning spring regular season. This is MSU head football coach Bobby Petrino’s first real opportunity to show the community what he can do...and so far, it likes what it sees.   Listen to the program below:
