Number 12 Baker Football Hosts Culver-Stockton on Family Day

Baker University Sports Press Release:

BALDWIN CITY, Kan. – The No. 12 ranked Baker University football team looks to bounce back from a home opening day loss to No. 10 Grand View University, as they take on the Culver-Stockton Wildcats this Saturday at 1:00 p.m. inside Liston Stadium. Saturday also marks, family day, for the Baker community.

BU has dominated the all-time series against Culver, posting a 34-4 record heading into today's matchup, including a 67-7 victory last season in Canton, Missouri.

In that contest, running back Nate Pauly recorded two rushing touchdowns on seven carries for 66-yards, making him one of four Wildcats to record a multi-touchdown game.

Linebacker Jake Zieler returns for his sophomore season with the Wildcats, looking to make an impact on the defensive side of the ball. In 2017, Zieler played in 12 games and helped BU rank nationally in eight different defensive statistical categories.

Culver-Stockton is off to an impressive start to its 2018 season, as they have posted a 2-1 record through its first three games, including a 35-22 victory over Central Methodist on September 1st, before falling last week to MNU, 46-20.

Sophomore quarterback Korbin Marcum returns for Culver-Stockon, looking to continue his early season success. Marcum has thrown seven touchdowns to only one interception so far this season and has completed 73-percent of his passes.

Through three games, Culver has 1,210 yards of total offense, averaging 403 yards per game, while the defense has allowed 282 yards per game.

The Baker offense has averaged 319 yards of offense through its first two games and will look to stifle the Culver offense with a strong defensive game plan.

In this matchup of Wildcats, Baker has won 10 of the last 11 games, and have recorded 50 or more points in three-straight matchups, including an 89-27 victory in 2016. In that contest, Baker set a team record for points in a single half with 75.
