The Rattlers (1-0) of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference took a 20-0 lead into halftime behind touchdown runs from Fleming and Albert and two short field goals by Chase Varnadore.

Mississippi Valley State closed to 20-10 after Collins scored on a 2-yard sneak with 10:21 remaining in the fourth quarter.
