On an opening weekend full of massive matchups with conference and national title implications, one of the wildest games came from a Sun Belt-MAC matchup between Texas State and Ohio.
The game was bananas with Texas State eventually beating Ohio in triple overtime by a 56-54 final after the Bobcats failed to convert a two-point conversion. The all-Bobcats matchup saw three scores in the final 51 seconds of the fourth quarter, with it ending up 38-38 at the end of regulation.
After a quick out gave Texas State the lead, Ohio answered almost immediately with a 75-yard touchdown on a tunnel screen pass to take the lead back by three.
Texas State then drove down the field in 38 seconds, setting up a game-tying field goal with this incredible throw and catch.
The two teams traded touchdowns in the three overtime periods, but it was Texas State’s ability to convert the two-point conversion following this double-pass touchdown that made the difference.
In total, the game saw 110 points and 1,176 yards of total offense. Long live the #FunBelt and #MACtion.
