Missouri State senior quarterback Brodie Lambert was named Missouri Valley Football Conference Offensive Player of the Week, after leading the Bears to a 38-35 win over Southern Illinois Saturday in Springfield.

Lambert completed 25-of-39 passes and posted career highs for total offense (390), passing yards (339) and rushing yards (51) while tossing four touchdown passes over the Salukis. Lambert threw for three TDs in the second half and guided an offense that racked up 516 yards of total offense in helping the Bears rally from a 14-point deficit.

With the first Valley player of the week honor of his career, Lambert joins fellow Bears Sam Ellifrits (Offensive Lineman of the Week—Oct. 2), Dylan Cole (Defensive Player of the Week—Oct. 2) and Deion Holliman (Special Teams Player of the Week—Sept. 4) as MVFC weekly award winners this season.

The Bears (4-4, 2-3 MVFC) travel to Brookings, S.D., next Saturday (Nov. 5) for a 2 p.m. match-up with South Dakota State at Dana J. Dykhouse Stadium.
