"The No. 5 Missouri Valley College football team hosted No. 12 Northwestern (Iowa) College Saturday at Gregg-Mitchell Field in the 2014 NAIA Football Championship Series First Round.  The Vikings rallied late and eventually knocked off the Red Raiders in double-overtime 20-17.... a fourth down pass attempt fell incomplete, as the Red Raiders ended their second overtime possession with no points. The Vikings handed the ball off to Daniels on three-straight plays, gaining seven yards.  Daniel Mouro lined up a 35-yard field goal attempt, which he made to give Missouri Valley the 20-17 win and put the team into the NAIA FCS Quarterfinals for the third-straight year." - Vikings

November 15, 2014 - Daniel Mouro kicks game winner over Baker
"The No. 7 Missouri Valley College football team wrapped up its 2014 regular season with a trip to Baldwin City, Kan., to play No. 12 Baker (Kan.) University.  The Vikings scored a last-minute field goal to beat Baker 27-24 and in the process win the program’s fourth-straight Heart of America Athletic Conference title and increase its chances of receiving a bid into the NAIA Football Championship Series.... Missouri Valley’s next possession ended in a three-and-out, giving Baker the ball with nearly four minutes to play.  Baker was set up at its own 26-yard line with just under two minutes to play in the game, when Phillips sacked the Baker quarterback and forced a fumble.  The fumble was recovered by Sophomore Linebacker Dario Marquez (Miami, Fla.), and gave MVC the ball at the Baker 24-yard line.  The Vikings picked up eight yards on the next three plays and Daniel Mouro hit a 33-yard field goal to give MVC the late lead at 27-24." - Vikings
