The Beavers will play Washburn University Ichabod’s. The Beaver Radio Network will bring you all the action from Missouri.

The Beavers finished the regular season at 8-3. Washburn finished 7-4. The Mineral Water Bowl features the top teams from the Northern Sun Conference (NSIC) and the Mid American Athletic Association (MIAA) that do not make the NCAA D-2 playoffs.

BSU played in the game in 2006, losing to perennial power Pittsburg State 35-27.

The Mineral Water Bowl has been an Excelsior Springs tradition since 1948. The Bowl got its start as a high school game, and made its return after a 17-year hiatus in 1992 as a post-season junior college contest. The Bowl has hosted Division II teams since 2000, and today is the only NCAA-sanctioned bowl game for Division II football.
