Grand View began only their fifth season of college football ever with a #15 ranking and a home opener against Graceland.

Once the game got underway, Graceland could move the ball on offense but failed to put it in the end zone in their game against their in-state rival. Graceland's offense put on 318 yards of total offense and held Grand View to 234, but only could manage two field goals.

#18 Baker3371427
#11 Ottawa7301020
Baker's offense lines up against the Ottawa Braves on the way to their 27–20 victory.

Baker and Ottawa met in the season's first NAIA "Game of the Week" on August 25. This was the sixth time that both teams have met in their season opener, and the 81st meeting all-time for the two programs. Going into the game, Baker led the rivalry 45-33-2 including a 41-16 victory in 2011.[12]

The Ottawa Braves of the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference began the game winning the conference two of the last three seasons and three consecutive post-season appearances. Baker brought five consecutive winning seasons and five rankings in the top 25 final poll.[13]

When the game got under way, Baker scored first with a 12-yard field goal by Steven Stewart with 8:13 left in the first quarter, but not after losing starting quarterback Jake Morse to injury for the remainder of the game. With 4:45 left in the first, Ottawa answered back with a touchdown and kicked the extra point to make the score 7–3. One more field goal by each team put the score 10–6 at halftime.[14]

In the fourth quarter, Baker took the score from tied up at 13–13 to a 27–13 lead by capitalizing on two turnovers. With 1:49 left to play, Ryder Werts fell on the ball in the end zone for a touchdown and kicker Steven Stewart made the extra point to put the Wildcats up by seven. Just 29 seconds later, Baker's Emmerson Clarke took a 48-yard interception return for a touchdown. Stewart's extra point put the score at 27–13. Ottawa managed a final touchdown with five seconds to go in the fourth quarter to put the final score at 27–20, with Baker recording the upset victory over the higher-ranked team.[14]

Baker had two key players injured during and prior to the game. Morse's injury was somewhat of a repeat of the matchup in 2010, when he left the game due to a concussion. Just one week earlier, Junior Scott Meyer’s season ended from injury in a scrimmage game against Fort Scott Community College.[15]

Ottawa began the game without offensive starter Matt Bollig, who suffered a career-ending injury during weightlifting practice in July.[16]
