Unfortunately for Oklahoma State, the referees conferred and called an intentional grounding penalty, making a loss on downs and giving Central Michigan an untimed play from their own 49 yard line. I know that the game cannot end on a penalty by the defense, but I don't know if I've seen or heard of the game not being allowed to end on a penalty by the offense like that. Central Michigan threw a 42 yard pass to the 9 yard line, where the receiver got pulled down from behind, but he managed to throws a lateral before being tackled. A teammate caught the ball and ran in the end zone. Oklahoma State touched him before he got in the end zone, but the ball broke the plane of the end zone in time, and Central Michigan won 30-27. It was Central Michigan's first win over a team ranked in the AP Poll since 1991.
    Refs were wrong.

    The referee for the Central Michigan-Oklahoma State game admitted that officials mistakenly awarded an untimed final play to the Chippewas, which they used to score a wild winning touchdown to beat the Cowboys 30-27 on Saturday.

    As for the play executed by the Chippewas, it's a combination of the Bluegrass Miracle executed by LSU on Kentucky and Boise State and Utah's Hook-and-Ladder laterals.

    I bet Mike Gundy is sick to his stomach after watching his defense on the final play when three guys were going for Jesse Kroll and leaving two guys against three including Corey Willis who made a nice stop on a dime and cut to the other side for the touchdown.

    The OSU Cowboys defense let Chippewa QB Cooper Rush torched them for 361 passing yards and four touchdowns.

    Re: 2016 NCAA Football Season Thread (FBS and FCS)

    After seeing #22 ranked Oklahoma State Cowboys lose a heartbreaker to the Central Michigan Chippewas, the Big XII Conference also saw another of their ranked teams faltered.

    Gary Patterson will chew his Texas Christian Horned Frogs defense again after the #15 ranked team in the nation lost to the Arkansas Razorbacks in Double Overtime, 41-38.

    The Razorbacks led 20-7 heading into the fourth quarter thanks to two field goals from Cole Hedlund, a pick-six from Brooks Ellis and Austin Allen connecting with Drew Morgan with a 13-yard touchdown pass.

    But TCU won't quit. QB Kenny Hill and RB Kyle Hicks each scored twice on the ground in the second half as those two gave the Horned Frogs a 28-20 lead with 1:19 left in the fourth.

    However, Allen forced overtime with his second touchdown pass of the game, this time to Keon Hatcher from 16 yards out.

    Allen threw his third touchdown pass of the game to Jeremy Sprinkle from 19 yards out to give Arkansas a 35-28 lead.

    However, Hill helped TCU force a second overtime with his 13-yard touchdown pass to Taj Williams as the game was tied at 35-all.

    TCU grabbed a 38-35 lead with a Ryan Graf 37-yard field goal.

    But Allen won it for Arkansas with a five-yard touchdown run.

    Allen had 223 passing yards and four total touchdowns in the win for Arkansas.

    Hill had 473 yards of total offense with three total touchdowns in a losing effort for TCU.

    Some other Big XII teams made up those two losses with blowout wins.

    #20 ranked Texas A&M Aggies crippled the Prairie View A&M Panthers 67-0.

    Aggies QB Trevor Knight led the way with 422 yards of total offense and four total touchdowns including 344 yards passing and three touchdown passes, two to Christian Kirk.

    #23 ranked Baylor Bears go to 2-0 after a 40-13 rout over the Southern Methodist Mustangs.

    Baylor was tied with SMU 6-6 at halftime after Josh Williams and Chris Callahan each booted two field goals.

    But Bears QB Seth Russell turned up the heat with three second-half touchdowns, two passing and rushing. Orion Stewart added a pick-six for good measure.

    #14 ranked Oklahoma Sooners had a much better performance against the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks in a 59-17 rout.

    Sooners QB Baker Mayfield had 244 yards passing and three passing touchdowns with Austin Kendall adding two more touchdowns. Samaje Perine added two touchdown runs.

    #11 ranked Texas Longhorns showed no let up after their scalp against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish after their 41-7 romp over the Texas-El Paso Miners.

    Shane Buechele had 244 yards and four touchdowns on 22/27 passing as Jerrod Heard caught two of Buechele's four touchdown passes.

    Chris Warren III added 95 yards on the ground and a major on 20 carries.

    The Longhorn defense had five sacks.

    #16 ranked Iowa Hawkeyes blew out their interstate rival the Iowa State Cyclones 42-3.

    C.J. Beathard led the way for Kirk Ferentz's men with 235 passing yards and three touchdowns. LeShun Daniels, Jr. added 112 rushing yards and a score on 15 carries.

    The #1 ranked team in the nation, the Alabama Crimson Tide rolled over the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers 38-10 thanks to Jalen Hurts who threw for 287 yards and two touchdowns.

    The Crimson Tide defense allowed 239 yards and had a pick-six from Eddie Jackson.

    #2 ranked Clemson Tigers survived another scare as Dabo Swinney's crew held off the Troy Trojans 30-24.

    Clemson QB Deshaun Watson threw two picks in the game, but made up for them with 292 passing yards and three passing touchdowns.

    Troy QB Brandon Silvers made Swinney sweat a bit after 233 yards passing and two touchdowns.

    But the Clemson defense stood tall after Troy was only 2-for-15 on third-down conversions.

    #3 ranked Florida State Seminoles had no problems with the Charleston Southern Buccaneers after a 52-8 destruction.

    The Buccaneers were shorthanded after 14 players were suspended for violating NCAA Financial Aid violations.
    http://www.wctv.tv/content/news/Char...392920371.html

    Deondre Francois didn't care as he threw for 262 yards on 25/32 passing with three touchdowns, two to Travis Rudolph.

    Dalvin Cook added 83 yards and two scores in the rout.

    Jim Harbaugh has a confident quarterback in Wilton Speight.

    Speight threw for 312 yards and four scores, two each to Jake Butt and Amara Darboh, in #4 ranked Michigan Wolverines 59-14 rout over the Central Florida Knights.

    #3 ranked Ohio State Buckeyes clobbered the Tulsa Golden Hurricane 48-3 despite a weather delay.

    Buckeyes QB J.T. Barrett had two touchdown runs with Mike Weber adding 92 yards on the ground and a score on 17 carries.

    The Ohio State defense had six takeaways including four interceptions. Two of the interceptions were pick-sixes from Malik Hooker and Marshon Lattimore.

    #6 ranked Houston Cougars blew out the Lamar Cardinals 42-0 without QB Greg Ward Jr. and RB Duke Catalon. Both Ward Jr. and Catalon sat out due to injury.

    Houston backup QB Kyle Postma and RB Kevrin Justice did the damage.

    Postma had 106 yards on the ground and two touchdowns on seven carries while Kevrin Justice added 111 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 27 carries.

    Mulbah Car chipped in with 109 yards and one touchdown on 20 carries in Houston's rout.

    #9 ranked Georgia Bulldogs held off late Nicholls Colonels charge to grab a 26-24 win.

    Jacob Eason threw for 204 yards, one touchdown, a 66-yarder to Isaiah McKenzie and one interception.

    Nick Chubb added 80 yards and a score on 20 carries.

    The Georgia defense had three takeaways and a scoop-and-six in the third quarter to give Georgia a 26-14.

    Chase Fourcade kept Nicholls in the game with two touchdown passes, but his two picks cost the Colonels as the Bulldogs survive.

    #19 ranked Ole Miss Rebels throttled the Wofford Terriers 38-13.

    Rebels QB Chad Kelly went 20/27 passing for 219 yards and three touchdowns.

    Mark Richt goes to 2-0 as Miami Hurricanes head coach after the #25 ranked team in the nation earned a 38-10 victory over the Florida Atlantic Owls.

    Miami (FL) RB Mark Walton had 155 rushing yards and four scores on 17 carries.

    Joseph Yearby added 121 yards and a score off 20 carries.

    The Miami defense had seven sacks.

    No Leonard Fournette, no problem for the #21 ranked LSU Tigers in their 34-13 win over the Jacksonville State Gamecocks.

    Derrius Guice led the way with 155 yards on the ground with a touchdown on 19 carries.

    #24 ranked Oregon Ducks defeated the Virginia Cavaliers, 44-26.

    Dakota Prukop had 331 yards passing and three touchdowns. Royce Freeman added 207 yards and two scores on 21 carries.

    Cavaliers QB Kurt Benkert had 193 yards and two touchdowns, but threw two picks and was sacked six times.

    Finally inside Bristol Motor Speedway, #17 ranked Tennessee Volunteers made enough adjustments to overcome a 14-0 first quarter deficit to rout the Virginia Tech Hokies 45-24.

    Jerod Evans, who threw for 214 yards in the game, connected with Sam Rogers for a seven-yard connection.

    Travon McMillian, who had 122 yards on the ground, gored through the Vols defense for a 69-yard touchdown run.

    But Vols signal-caller Joshua Dobbs went crazy from the second quarter onwards.

    Dobbs had 197 yards of total offense and had five total touchdowns including two on the ground as the Vols won in front of almost 107,000 inside Bristol Motor Speedway.

    Re: 2016 NCAA Football Season Thread (FBS and FCS)

    BB55's 3 Up, 3 Down - Week 2 FBS

    Week 2 action was not as dramatic and exciting as Week 1, but it did have its share of moments in my latest 3 Up, 3 Down.

    3 Up
    1. Central Michigan Chippewas
    Why? The Chippewas took advantage of a referee gaffe by converting a Hail Mary lateral that had the combination of the Bluegrass Miracle LSU executed against Kentucky and the Hook-and-Ladders in the old BCS Bowl games from Boise State and Utah 2X to grab their first win over a AP-ranked opponent since 1991 when the Chippewas defeated a #18 ranked Michigan State team in East Lansing 20-3.

    2. Louisville QB Lamar Jackson
    Why? Jackson had 610 yards of total offense and five total touchdowns against Syracuse.
    His Heisman Trophy chances will get a huge boost if he performs really well and the Louisville Cardinals beats the Florida State Seminoles in Week 3.

    3. Army Black Knights
    Why? Army is 2-0 to start their 2016 season. Army hasn't started a season 2-0 since Bob Sutton led Army to a 10-2 record in 1996 when they were the Army Cadets.

    3 Down
    1. Kentucky Wildcats
    Why? Mark Stoops saw his Kentucky Wildcats follow up their 35-10 meltdown against the Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles with a whimper against the Florida Gators as Kentucky loses to Florida for the 30th straight time after a 45-7 vaporizing at the Swamp.
    Three completed passes against the Florida defense won't get it done.

    2. Northwestern Wildcats
    Why? Pat Fitzgerald won 70 games as Northwestern head coach, but 2016 has been a very rough start for him and his team going 0-2 including a 9-7 loss to FCS squad Illinois State Redbirds.
    https://twitter.com/RedbirdFB/status/774745902141452289

    3. Big XII's playoff hopes
    Why? Oklahoma and Texas are trying to keep the Big XII's bid for a Final Four spot alive after a Sooner bounce back and the Longhorns are up to 2-0, but their record in non-conference games is not good.

    #6 ranked Houston Cougars thwarted the Cincinnati Bearcats' upset bid with a 28-0 run in the final 12 minutes to win 40-16 inside Nippert Stadium.

    It was a back and forth contest up until the Cougars' 28-0 run in the fourth.

    Houston Cougar QB Greg Ward Jr. helped his team surface first with a 39-yard touchdown pass to Chance Allen.

    However, Cincy replied to tie the game at 7-all after one quarter when Hayden Moore delivered a 61-yard touchdown strike to Devin Gray.

    Ty Cummings and Andrew Gantz kept the game tied at 10-10 at halftime as both teams traded field goals.

    The Houston defense scored the only points in the third quarter with a safety to take a 12-10 lead into the fourth.

    Moore's second touchdown pass of the game to Nate Cole from four yards out gave Cincinnati a 16-12 lead early in the fourth. The Bearcats tried for two, but failed.

    It was a Houston avalanche the rest of the game.

    Ward Jr. had two touchdown runs of 12 and three yards and Houston had two pick-sixes off Moore from Steven Taylor, a 74-yarder, and Howard Wilson, a 28-yarder, in a 23 second span to complete the pull-away.

    Both teams had three turnovers and three sacks in the game.

    Ward Jr. had 399 yards of total offense in the game with three total touchdowns and threw two interceptions in the win.

    It was the Lamar Jackson show in Louisville as the #10 ranked Louisville Cardinals vaporized the #2 ranked Florida State Seminoles 63-20 inside Papa John's Cardinal Stadium.

    Bobby Petrino saw his megastar quarterback stampeded the Seminoles defense with 362 yards of total offense and five total touchdowns including 146 on the ground and four rushing scores.

    Brandon Radcliff helped Louisville continue to gash the Seminoles defense with a 118 rushing yard and a touchdown effort on 14 carries as the Cardinals had 314 of their 530 yards on the ground and seven rushing scores for the game.

    The Lousiville defense sacked Seminoles QB Deondre Francois five times and allowed 113 passing yards.

    Jaire Alexander added a 69-yard punt return score as Louisville outscored Florida State 49-0 from 8:11 left in the second quarter to 6:05 remaining in the game.

    L'Ville goes to 3-0 overall and already 2-0 in ACC play.

    Meanwhile in Death Valley, the #5 ranked Clemson Tigers found their high-octane offense in a 59-0 crippling on the South Carolina State Bulldogs.

    Clemson QB Deshaun Watson went 12-for-15 passing for 152 yards and three touchdowns, two to Ray-Ray McCloud.

    Denzel Johnson added a scoop-and-six after Ahmaad Harris fumbled a kickoff as Clemson had a 31-0 first quarter barrage.

    The fourth quarter was reduced from 15 minutes to 12 after both coaches agreed due to Clemson's blow out.

    #25 ranked Miami (FL) Hurricanes demolished the Appalachian State Mountaineers 45-10 to go to 3-0 under Mark Richt.

    There was a stunner inside Iowa City's Kinnick Stadium as the five-time defending FCS champion North Dakota State Bison grabbed a huge scalp in their program's history after edging the #13 ranked Iowa Hawkeyes 23-21 at the death.

    It was the Bison's first win over a ranked FBS opponent ever and takes their record against FBS opponents to 9-3.

    North Dakota State led 7-0 after the first quarter when MJ Stumpf grabbed a 21-yard pick-six off Hawkeyes QB C.J. Beathard.

    Beathard did bounce back throwing two touchdown passes to Riley McCarron right down Broadway for 30 yards and went up the gut again to Matt VandeBerg from 14 yards out as Iowa led 14-7 at halftime.

    North Dakota State tied the game at 14 midway through the third quarter thanks to a King Frazier one-yard punch, but Beathard threw his third touchdown of the game and the second to VandeBerg from nine yards out to give Iowa a 21-14 lead heading into the fourth.

    But Easton Stick led the Bison charge with a seven-yard touchdown pass to Chase Morlock with 4:29 to go. The Bison went for two and didn't get it.

    However, Stick and the Bison forced a punt and Stick had a 29-yard scramble crossing Iowa territory. A few more plays set up Cam Pedersen's 37-yard field goal with five seconds left as the Bison sent shockwaves throughout the college football world.

    There was a near upset inside Madison's Camp Randall Stadium as the #9 ranked Wisconsin Badgers survived a scare as they had to rally late to avert Georgia State Panthers' upset bid with a 23-17 win.

    After Wisconsin led 6-3 after both teams scored a combined three field goals, it wasn't until 3:37 of the third quarter when the first touchdown was scored.

    Badgers RB Dare Ogunbowale's two yard touchdown run gave Wisconsin a 13-3 lead.

    However, Georgia State went on a 14-0 run to take a 17-13 lead in the fourth.

    Panthers QB Conner Manning threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to Robert Davis to pull his team to 13-10 heading into the fourth and Kyler Neal scored a nine-yard touchdown run to give Georgia State a 17-13 lead early in the fourth.

    However, Alex Hornibrook's one-yard touchdown pass to Kyle Penniston gave Wisconsin a 20-17 lead before Rafael Gaglianone, who booted two field goals in the first half, kicked his third of the day from 41 yards out as Wisconsin held on despite two turnovers.

    #15 ranked Tennessee Volunteers holds off the Ohio Bobcats 28-19.

    Volunteers QB Joshua Dobbs had 262 yards of total offense and three total touchdowns including 203 through the air and two touchdown throws, both to Josh Malone.

    Louie Zervos had four field goals in a losing effort for Ohio as they went 6-for-20 on third downs.

    Re: 2016 NCAA Football Season Thread (FBS and FCS)

    Nick Saban and the #1 ranked team in the nation, the defending FBS National Champion Alabama Crimson Tide defeat a pesky #19 ranked Ole Miss Rebels squad 48-43.

    Hugh Freeze's men were up 24-3 with 2:58 left in the second quarter.

    Rebels RB Akeem Judd started the scoring with a 23-yard touchdown run and Rebels QB Chad Kelly threw a 63-yard touchdown strike to Evan Engram.

    John Youngblood added to the lead with a scoop-and-six off a Jalen Hurts' lost fumble.

    However, the Tide scored 14 points to close the gap within seven, 24-17 at halftime.

    Calvin Ridley punched in a six-yard touchdown run and Eddie Jackson added a 85-yard punt return score.

    Alabama then outscored Ole Miss 17-3 in the third quarter to take a 34-27 lead into the fourth.

    Da'Ron Payne had a three-yard fumble return touchdown after Kelly coughed up the ball to take the game at 24-24 early in the third and Bo Scarbrough followed up Adam Griffith's 30-yard field goal with a one-yard punch.

    Gary Wunderlich's third field goal of the game cut Bama's lead to 34-30 early in the fourth, but the Tide kept rolling with two touchdowns to grab a 48-30 lead with 6:18 to go.

    Damien Harris scored a one-yard touchdown run and Jonathan Allen had a 75-yard pick-six.

    Kelly tried to get Ole Miss back in the game with two touchdown passes to Damore'ea Stringfellow, a five-yarder and a 37-yarder to A.J. Brown, but Ole Miss came up five points short.

    Kelly had 421 yards passing and three touchdowns in a losing effort, but his two turnovers cost Ole Miss as the Tide scored 14 points off them, both were defensive scores.

    #4 ranked Michigan Wolverines overcame a 21-7 first quarter deficit to pull away from the Colorado Buffaloes inside the Big House 45-28.

    Sefo Liufau threw two touchdown passes in the first quarter, both to Devin Ross, and Derek McCartney recovered a Wilton Speight lost fumble for a 18-yard score as Colorado led 21-7. Michigan's only score was a blocked punt score from Grant Perry after Alex Kinney blocked it.

    Jim Harbaugh's men outscored the Buffs 17-0 in the second quarter to take a 24-21 halftime lead.

    Jehu Chesson scampered in a 17-yard touchdown run to start the rally with Kenny Allen following it up with a 39-yard field goal and Speight threw a 45-yard touchdown pass to Amara Darboh to finish off Michigan's 17-0 second quarter.

    But Colorado took the lead early in the third quarter when Liufau threw his third touchdown pass of the game, a 70-yarder to Shay Fields as the Buffaloes led 28-24.

    Liufau had 246 yards and a three touchdowns in the game.

    But it was all Michigan after that.

    De'Veon Smith burst into the end zone with a 42-yard score followed by a Ty Isaac one-yard score as Michigan led 38-28 after three.

    Jabrill Peppers sealed it with a 54-yard score.

    The Nebraska Cornhuskers edged the #22 ranked Oregon Ducks 35-32.

    Cornhuskers QB Tommy Armstrong Jr. had 293 yards of total offense and four total touchdowns including his 34-yard scamper with three minutes to go in the game. Armstrong had 200 yards passing and three scores with Jordan Westerkamp grabbing two of them.

    Ducks QB Dakota Prukop had 233 yards of total offense which set up Tony Brooks-James to score a rushing hat-trick.

    However, the Ducks went for two three times and converted on one of them and it backfired when Armstrong Jr. scored the game-winner with three minutes to go.

    It got worse for the Bulldogs when Nick Fitzgerald was benched after being sacked five times and completed 12 of 24 passes.

    The Bulldogs got a jolt when backup QB Damian Williams had two fourth quarter touchdowns, a one-yard run and a seven-yard pass to Fred Ross, but LSU held down the fort long enough for the win.

    In the Swamp, the #23 ranked Florida Gators destroyed the North Texas Mean Green with a 32-0 whitewash.

    The Gators had 255 rushing yards and four touchdowns in the game. Mark Thompson led the way with 85 and a score.

    #12 ranked Michigan State Spartans handed #18 ranked Notre Dame Fighting Irish's first home loss at Notre Dame Stadium since November 22, 2014 to the Louisville Cardinals in a 36-28 win.

    But Mark Dantonio's Spartans scored 36 unanswered points from the second quarter to 4:26 left in the third quarter to take a 36-7 lead.

    It was another massive blow for the Big XII Conference's playoff chances.

    Both Red River rivals lost their games.

    In Norman, Bob Stoops saw #14 ranked Oklahoma Sooners crushed by #3 ranked Ohio State Buckeyes 45-24.

    Buckeyes QB J.T. Barrett shredded the Sooner defense with 226 yards of total offense and four touchdown passes, all four to Noah Brown.

    Curtis Samuel added 98 rushing yards and a score off 11 carries.

    The Buckeye defense swallowed up Baker Mayfield with three sacks and had two interceptions.

    Meanwhile, a controversial ending in Berkeley as the California Golden Bears outlast #11 ranked Texas Longhorns 50-43 in a shootout.

    Cal QB Davis Webb threw for 396 yards and four touchdowns and had five touchdowns overall.

    Chad Hansen caught two of Webb's four touchdown passes as he caught 12 balls for 196 yards in the win.

    California RB Vic Enwere added 110 yards and two majors on 18 carries.

    Texas RB's D'Onta Foreman and Chris Warren III combined for 276 yards and four touchdowns with Foreman having 157 and Warren III having 119.

    Shane Buechele had 196 passing yards and a touchdown pass, but the Texas offense had two turnovers, both interceptions.

    There was controversy near the end of the game with Cal up 50-43 with under 90 seconds to go. Enwere gored through the middle of the Texas defense and appeared to score a game-sealing touchdown.

    However, Enwere dropped the ball before crossing the goalline. Texas head coach Charlie Strong was fuming at the referees when the referees called the play dead despite one of the Longhorn players picking up the ball.

    Cal went on to secure the victory with kneel downs.

    BB55's FBS 3 Up/3 Down - Week 3

    After three weeks of the 2016 FBS football season, it's time for another installment of 3 Up/3 Down

    3 Up
    1. North Dakota State Bison
    Why? The five-time defending FCS National Champion North Dakota State Bison grabbed their first ever win against a ranked FBS opponent in their history with a last-second field goal over #13 ranked Iowa Hawkeyes in Iowa City.

    2. Louisville livewire QB Lamar Jackson
    Why? Jackson torched the Florida State Seminole defense with 362 yards of total offense and five total touchdowns including 146 on the ground and four rushing scores. If Bobby Petrino's Louisville can beat the Clemson Tigers in Death Valley two weeks from now, they're in the driver's seat for the ACC Atlantic Division title.

    3. Nebraska Cornhuskers QB Tommy Armstrong Jr.
    Why? Armstrong Jr. had 293 yards of total offense and four total touchdowns including his 34-yard scamper with three minutes to go in their 35-32 win over the Oregon Ducks. Armstrong also converted a fourth-and-nine to set up the touchdown run.

    3 Down
    1. Florida State Seminoles
    Why? A crippling loss to the Louisville Cardinals throws a monkey wrench in Florida State Seminoles ACC Atlantic Division and their College Football Playoff chances.

    2. Big XII Conference
    Why? Another hammer blow for the Big XII playoff chances after the Oklahoma Sooners suffering their second loss of the season and the Texas Longhorns dropping their first loss of the season to the California Golden Bears. Only the Baylor Bears and the West Virginia Mountaineers are the only Big XII teams having yet to lose a game.

    3. Notre Dame Fighting Irish
    Why? Their second loss in 2016 to the Michigan State Spartans ended their playoff chances. The reason? Continuing problems on defense.

    Stanford, Washington and Utah are not bad.

    The Pacific-12 Conference teams will once again beat the crap out of each other.
