Week 4 recaps
- Emporia State 45, Northeastern State 24: No. 24 Emporia State continued to ride the hot hand of quarterback Brent Wilson, who passed for 410 yards and five touchdowns while completing 27 of his 41 pass attempts. Austin Willis caught nine passes for 152 yards and two scores for the Hornets, who broke a 14-14 tie on a 60-yard touchdown reception by Kavaski Ervin in the second quarter and went on to score 31 of the next 34 points in the game.
- Northwest Missouri State 53, Nebraska Kearney 7: Kearney’s lone touchdown came on Tyke Kozeal’s 74-yard interception return in the first quarter. The Lopers cut the Bearcats’ lead to 13-7 at the time, but those were the only points that Kearney would score. The Lopers turned the ball over four times, and No. 3 Northwest Missouri State rolled up 510 yards of total offense.
- Pittsburg State 59, Lincoln 38: No. 12 Pittsburg State was unstoppable on offense, amassing a staggering 787 yards of total offense against the Blue Tigers. The Gorillas opened to a 21-0 lead and never looked back, thanks to wide receiver John Brown and quarterback Anthony Abenoja. Brown caught nine passes for 237 yards and four touchdowns, and Abenoja passed for 442 yards and five touchdowns while completing 28 of 36 pass attempts.
- Washburn 28, Central Oklahoma 19: The Bronchos got to within two (21-19) of No. 18 Washburn in the fourth quarter, but a 5-yard touchdown by Vershon Moore with 8:30 left gave Washburn all it would need to win. It was Washburn’s second year in a row to struggle with the Bronchos, who blew out the Ichabods in 2012.
- Southwest Baptist 38, Missouri Southern 33: Missouri Southern raced out to a 27-7 lead midway through the second quarter, but Southwest Baptist responded with 31 unanswered points. Southwest Baptist quarterback Willie Tindal finished 22 of 32 for 399 yards and three touchdowns. The Bearcats went ahead 28-27 on John Colliver’s extra point following Nathan Mourik’s 50-yard touchdown reception from Tindal with 14:53 left in the game. Missouri Southern’s Chris Barnwell scored from four yards on with 1:03 left, but Lions were unable to convert on the subsequent onside kick.
- Missouri Western 52, Fort Hays State 21: Fort Hays State led on Edward Smith’s 6-yard touchdown catch from Treveon Albert, but Missouri Western went on to score 42 of the next 49 points. The sixth-ranked Griffons took advantage of four Fort Hays State turnovers.
- Central Missouri 44, Truman 23: A four-point game early in the fourth quarter turned into a blowout with the Mules scoring 23 unanswered points in a little less than 12 minutes. It all started when Central Missouri recorded a safety with 12 minutes left in the fourth quarter. Truman was set to punt the ball away but the snap went over Will Mondragon’s head, and Truman recovered the ball in the end zone, giving two points to Central Missouri, who would score touchdowns on each of its next three drives.
- Lindenwood 27, Missouri S&T 10: The Lions, after nursing a 17-10 lead, built a comfortable lead on Marvin Byrd’s 3-yard touchdown run with 8:34 left in the game. Lindenwood was also the beneficiary of Missouri S&T quarterback Reed Brown throwing five interceptions. Lindenwood ended up with six Missouri S&T turnovers.
