Baker University returned two interceptions for touchdowns and compiled 388 yards total offense, cruising to a 44-7 football victory over Graceland on Saturday in Lamoni, Iowa, for its fourth win in five games.

Linebacker Matt Brock and defensive end Andrew Patch both picked off two passes. They each returned an interception for touchdowns in the second quarter to provide the Wildcats with a 20-0 edge at halftime.

Quarterback Mack Brown completed 11 of 18 passes, including three touchdown tosses, for 168 yards. Tight end Aaron Rieschick had two TD receptions and Brad Fawcett had the other TD.
