Desperation ‘Cuse TD (McNabb to Steve Brominski )

With a hard-fought but lackluster 5-3 record the home team had bounced around the Top 25, but a week 8 loss had removed them from the rankings. The men in orange looked to rebound against a conference rival ranked #16 in the country. With 4:42 left in the 4th quarter and trailing 26-22 they began a final drive, leading to a 3rd & goal from the opponent’s 13-yard line with just 5 seconds left on the clock. On the final snap, the quarterback dropped back and rolled out to his right. He threw across to his tight end in the far left of the end zone who kept his body in front of the defender and clutched the ball against his chest before falling to the turf with the game winning catch. The brilliant reception sealed the 28-26 victory over the men from Blacksburg. Playmaker: Dominic V.
