Northwest Missouri entered Saturday's championship game on a 29-game winning streak and with one of the highest scoring offenses in the country. They were held at bay for most of the first half, however, by a stout North Alabama defense and the frigid conditions. It was 13 degrees at kickoff with a -4 windchill.

Adam Dorrel’s side was held at bay for 29 minutes but broke through with 58 seconds left in the second quarter. Jordan Grove took a shovel pass from Randy Schmidt and ran seven yards for the first score of the game. North Alabama answered quickly, though, with a field goal just before halftime.

The weather worsened in the second half as the wind picked up causing the snow to swirl around the stadium. The Bearcats were not to be denied, however, and put in a dominant second half performance. Phil Jackson ran for two scores as Northwest Missouri scored 22 unanswered points to cap the game.
