College football's wildest finish came from the Stephen F. Austin game on Saturday

September 17, 2017

It's rare when a college football Saturday isn't full of wild, down-to-the-wire finishes, but certain Saturdays stand out more than others.

This weekend was one of those instances, featuring our first epic last second hail mary victory of the season at Florida, and a rematch for the ages between USC and Texas.

There were shootouts between Memphis and UCLA, and Texas Tech and Arizona State, each game featuring over 90 combined points.

But the best finish of all may have come from the Stephen F. Austin vs. Incarnate Word game. Yes, a matchup between two 0-2 FCS teams.

With the game tied at 31 and just 16 seconds remaining, Incarnate Word decided to take one last shot from their own 25-yard-line. It did not go well for the Cardinals:

A walk-off, 67-yard pick six from Stephen F. Austin's Alize Ward sealed the deal for the Lumberjacks, giving them their first win of the season. And how about that hurdle near the endzone to cap it off!? Unbelievable.

In retrospect, attempting a flea flicker from your own 25 in a tie game and throwing it into triple coverage probably was not the best decision. If we could make a suggestion, maybe just kneel on it and take your chances in overtime next time.
