Head Coach Tyler Fenwick poses with Missouri S&T’s football team and the Mineral Water Bowl trophy on Dec. 1, 2018. The Miners defeated the Dragons of Minnesota State University Moorhead to claim the second bowl victory in the school’s history and its first in 68 years.

EXCELSIOR SPRINGS, Mo. — It was a long time between bowl games — 68 years, to be exact — but the Missouri S&T Miners proved they were worthy of the post-season on Saturday (Dec. 1, 2018) with a convincing win over the Minnesota State University Moorhead Dragons in the 2018 Mineral Water Bowl.

Missouri S&T defeated MSU Moorhead 51-16 on a rainy afternoon in Excelsior Springs, Missouri. Quarterback Tyler Swart, a petroleum engineering major from Dickinson, Texas, and defensive end Tershawn Wharton, an engineering management major from University City, Missouri, were named as the game MVPs — Swart for offense and Wharton for defense.

It was the first time a Miners football team had played in a bowl game since the 1950 Corn Bowl, when the Miners beat Illinois State 7-6, in Bloomington, Illinois. It was also only the second time a Miners football team played in a post-season bowl game, making the Miners undefeated in bowl games.
