WICHITA FALLS, Texas — Chalk this one up to growing pains.

The first-year program from the University of Texas of the Permian Basin ran headfirst into a buzz saw in the form of Midwestern State.

MSU (7-1, 6-1) got two touchdown passes apiece from Quade Coward and Layton Rabb. Nicholas Gabriel rushed for 128 yards and a touchdown, while Vincent Johnson rushed for 82 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Mustang offense.

UTPB freshman quarterback threw for 216 yards and two touchdowns and was sacked four times. The Falcons (2-7, 0-7) also got a rushing score from Marquis Simmons.
