Baker football advances to NAIA title game after comeback win over Eastern Oregon

After trailing 41-24 with 5:35 remaining in Saturday's NAIA semifinal matchup against Eastern Oregon, the Baker football team's dream of an undefeated season was in serious doubt. Junior quarterback Logan Brettell had thrown three second-half interceptions, but a short-term memory proved to be his best friend. Brettell threw three touchdown passes in the final five minutes — including a 77-yard game-winning strike to Clarence Clark with 38 seconds left to clinch a 45-41 win in a barn-burner at Liston Stadium.

Brown leads Baker football to first-round playoff win over Sterling

In a matchup of two of the NAIA's top passing offenses in Baker and Sterling, BU junior wide receiver Cornell Brown did not want to leave any doubt of which team had the most potent attack through the air in Saturday's first-round NAIA playoff game at Liston Stadium. Brown hauled in touchdown passes of 38 and 30 yards from junior quarterback Logan Brettell in the first six minutes, and the No. 2-ranked Wildcats never trailed in a 44-21 victory over the Warriors. The Baldwin High product corralled a team-high seven catches for 84 yards, and also led the Wildcats on the ground with 187 yards and two touchdowns on 19 carries to earn offensive player of the game honors. Eudora alumnus Nick Becker led the Baker defense with four sacks.
