No. 8 BU Looks to Keep Streak Alive


BALDWIN CITY, Kan. – The No. 8 ranked Baker University football team will look to continue its impressive winning streak over rival No. 14 ranked Benedictine College on Saturday afternoon at 1 p.m. at O'Malley Field at Larry Wilcox Stadium.

Baker has won seven straight over the Ravens and head coach Mike Grossner is 7-2 in his career against legendary head coach Larry Wilcox and hasn't lost to BC since 2005, when the Ravens won 31-27.

The 'Cats come in to the game with a 2-0 record and its highest ranking in the NAIA Coaches' Top 25 poll in the Grossner era. Baker defeated then-No. 18 ranked Ottawa, 25-24 back on Sept. 7 and then followed that up with a 41-40 thrilling win at University of St. Mary last week.

Benedictine also comes in 2-0 with a home win over Briar Cliff back on Aug. 31, 30-9, and then took down Friends University on the road last week, 28-15.

Comparing the two teams, both are almost identical offensively, with Baker accumulating 829 total yards and BC with 830. Baker has 325 yards on the ground and 504 through the air, while Benedictine has 373 yards rushing and 457 passing yards.

Both teams have punted 11 times this season and in the previous seven games, the Wildcats margin of victory is just six points.

Baker will look for Dillon Baxter to continue to lead the rushing attack, as the senior averages 103.5 yards on the ground per game and has yet to rush for a touchdown this season, as his one TD came on the game winning reception over OU in the season opener.

Leading the receiving core this season for Baker has been tight end/place kicker Clarence Clark. The freshman leads the team in receptions with seven and has a touchdown reception. He is also 2-of-4 in the kicking game with a long of 55 yards in the win over USM.
