A Most Incredible End to a College Football Game



The video above shows a last-minute touchdown after 15 separate lateral passes, and the announcer hyperventilates that "it might be the most sensational, incredible ending in all of Division 3 football."

I wonder how many of those were forward laterals.

Bill- Obviously zero. Did you see any flags? Duh.

bronze-

called forward lateral is not the same as forward lateral.

that would be like saying doing 100mph on the highway wasn't speeding because you didn't get a ticket.

I didn't know that a successful pass could involve the ball touching the ground in between.

I thought that would be a fumble.

At 1:07, it sounds like the person saying 'It's a Touchdown!!!' was the Macho Man Randy Savage.

So not only is he alive and well, but he is giving color commentary for college football now too?

Kmg, it WAS a fumble, technically -- laterals remain live on the ground and can be recovered by the defense. But since it was recovered by the offense, no turnover.

A "forward lateral" cannot exist; it's called a "pass". A lateral is a live ball. Seems some here don't know basics of American football....
