This season, the MIAA teams aren't playing any non-conference competition, putting immense pressure on every game.
Emporia State opened the season with a pair of wins before letting Missouri Western score a 38-37 comeback victory last week.
The Hornets rank 14th in Division II in passing yards per game, with quarterback Braden Gleason throwing for 909 yards through three games. He's thrown nine touchdowns and just one interception.
The Gorillas have also lost just once. They dropped a game at home to No. 16 Nebraska-Kearney two weeks ago but followed that up with a 48-13 win against Northeastern State last week.
Pittsburg State is third in the MIAA in scoring and fourth in scoring defense. The team has picked its opponents off five times in three games.
This will be the 99th time that these teams have played each other. Pittsburg State leads the all-time series 62-34-2, but things have gotten closer over the past decade. However, the Gorillas were victorious in the last three meetings, including a 47-23 win the last time these teams faced back in 2019.
