NORTHWEST MISSOURI 63, LINDENWOOD 7: Elkhorn South grad Braden Wright rushed for 116 yards and three TDs and passed for 152 as Northwest posted its largest playoff margin of victory ever in an NCAA Division II second-round game. Isaiah Strayhorn added a career-high 178 yards and two TDs as Northwest amassed 413 yards and eight TDs rushing. Northwest led 35-0 at halftime when it already had 376 total yards. Cade Brister threw for 205 yards for Lindenwood, but the Bearcats intercepted him four times. The Bearcats advance to play at Ferris State — in last year’s playoffs, Ferris edged Northwest 27-21.
