It was billed as the game to watch in week four of the Heart of America Athletic Conference as two undefeated teams were set to meet in Olathe Saturday afternoon.  It became another highlight reel for Benedictine College as the Ravens dismantled Mid America Nazarene University 55-20 and moved to 4-0 on the season.

MNU got on the board first, leading 3-0 after their first posession.  From that point BC put the Pioneers in a big hole and left no doubt about the outcome of the game.  By halftime, the Ravens had amassed a 35-6 lead.  Not even a hour long lightning delay in the second half could slow the Ravens who rolled up 600 yards of offense. 

For the second consecuitive week, running back Marquis Stewart paced the Raven ground game putting up 236 yards on 19 carries including 2 touchdown runs of 73 yards each.  Starting running back Ejay Johnson added 103 yards on 17 carries as, again, Ejay helped his team to a substantial early lead and shared playing time with teammates.  QB Schaefer Schuetz hit 11 of 17 passes resulting in 172 yards and 3 touchdowns.

Next up for BC is a home date with Baker University this Saturday in what could easily be the NAIA game-of-the-week as both teams bring undefeated records and national rankings into the contest.  The live KAIR 93.7 broadcast will begin with the pregame show at 12:30 with kickoff from Wilcox Stadium set for 1:00.
