Wichita Independent (KS) took on Chaparral (KS) last Friday in a classic shootout that came down to a fourth down call, and a heads up play.
Chaparral goes up with 19 seconds left in the game and Wichita Independent runs this screen pass from their own 19 yard line on 4th and 7.
The running back (who accounted for 400 all purpose yards in the game) makes a few guys miss on the screen and looks like he's got a good shot to take it the distance. But he eventually gets caught and as he's going down he pitches it back to one of the offensive lineman that had led the way on the screen, and the lineman breaks a tackle as he goes in for the game winner.
Lineman's hustle rewarded with a "Fat Guy" touchdown for the win!!! Every lineman's dream.
Middle Tennessee got a good program win over Georgia Tech Saturday, putting up nearly 50 points before it was all said and done (49-28).
Before they took the field, head coach Rick Stockstill reminded the team, "You've got a great opportunity. That's what it is. It ain't a challenge...it's an opportunity."
The Blue Raider offense went out and racked up more rushing and passing yards than the Yellow Jackets. Starting running back Benny Cunningham racked up 217 yards on 27 carries for 5 touchdowns (an 8 yards per carry average). The defense was successful containing the option offense (only two runs of over 20 yards, and only one pass of 20+), and pressuring the quarterback all day.
"I think that winning this game was probably harder and means more than the win we had at Maryland, because of the type of season that Georgia Tech is having and the type of seasons that they've had." Stockstill explained after the game.
"This one means a lot more to me because of the type of offense that Georgia Tech runs and how hard you have to be able to play to win the type of game like this."
Hear more of Coach Stockstill's thoughts and get a good look inside their big win in the clip.
Also, here's a good look inside Middle Tennesee's locker room and equipment room, including numerous new upgrades.
Matthew Stafford (Detroit) went 30 for 51 for 319 and no touchdowns yesterday and on Thursday Brandon Weeden (Cleveland) went 25-52 for 320 yards without a touchdown throw.
That adds up to 103 passing attempts between two NFL quarterbacks (an established starter and a rookie, both first round picks) without a touchdown.The last time that two quarterbacks had 50 pass attempts without a touchdown was 1996 with Drew Bledsoe (Patriots) and Dave Brown (Giants) in losing efforts.
When you look back the last ten times a quarterback has thrown the ball 50+ times without a touchdown, Brett Favre's name is in the record book on four different occasions.

Tabor College (KS) and Ottawa University (KS) squared off on Saturday in NAIA action complete with a wild finish.
In the clip below, Ottawa has just thrown an interception on their own three yard line, and Tabor is lined up to punch in an insurance touchdown to add to their 21-18 lead with a minute and a half left in the game.
As you can see, it didn't quite work out that way. Ottawa returns a fumble that squirts deep into the end zone and they return the ball over a hundred yards for the game winning touchdown.
