The Wildcats were favored by 11 going into the game. The game was debut of K-State's brand new West Stadium Center, a brand new press box and luxury suite building, and featuring a statue of head coach Bill Snyder, replacing the old structure built in 1993. The Bison spoiled the opening game of the Wildcats' season, which featured a pre-game ceremony of raising the 2012 Big 12 Conference Champions flag. North Dakota State, trailing 21–17 in the middle of the fourth quarter, made an eight minute touchdown drive to go up by 2 points with just 28 seconds remaining. New K-State quarterback Jake Waters threw an interception on the Wildcats' first play of the possession, sealing the victory for the two-time defending FCS champions.

North Dakota State went on to finish the season undefeated with a record of 15–0[2] and won their third consecutive FCS Championship.[3]

The Wildcats were favored by 10 going into the game. Kansas State scored 10 points in each of the first two quarters while giving up just 3 points in the half. Tramaine Thompason returned the opening kickoff of the second half 94 yards for a touchdown. Moments later, Thompson returned a Louisiana–Lafayette punt 79 yards to the Rajin' Cajun 2-yard line. Following a Jake Waters 1-yard touchdown run, Louisiana–Lafayette returned the ensuing kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown. In the fourth quarter K-State's Ty Zimmerman returned an interception 32 yards for a touchdown after the ball deflected off of a Rajin' Cajun player's helmet. K-State was able to score on offense, defense, and special teams in the second half alone. K-State leads the nation for most non-offense touchdowns since 1999.

This was K-state's 5th consecutive win in the series and 2nd senior class for Kansas to go winless since Bill Snyder came back again after 2008 season.

Kansas State maintained the lead for the remainder of the game. At halftime, Kansas State led 21–6 with Tyler Lockett receiving three touchdown passes from Jake Waters and Michigan succeeding with two field goals. After no score in the third quarter, Michigan's Fitzgerald Toussaint ran the ball three yards for a touchdown while Kansas State's Patterson made a field goal and John Hubert ran in a touchdown for 1 yard.[4]

Kansas State won the game by a score of 31–14. Many sportswriters determined that Kansas State controlled the Michigan team through the entire game and one wrote "Kansas State dominates Michigan in Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl" to summarize the results.[5] Another wrote that "K-State could be a 2014 Big 12 title contender" after the results of the game.[6] Supporters of Michigan used the results to highlight high hopes for the upcoming seasons with comments such as "The young guys are the bright spot for this team."[7]

Kansas State's Tyler Lockett was named the offensive MVP. Lockett finished the game with ten catches for 116 yards and three touchdowns to tie the Bowl record.[8] Kansas State safety Dante Barnett was awarded the Defensive MVP.
