The wildest finish of Week 3 of the college football season came in a game between Stephen F. Austin and Incarnate Word.
Prior to the final play of the game, the score was tied, 31-31.
Incarnate Word attempted to score a miraculous touchdown on the final play, drawing up a flea-flicker and heaving the ball down field. Unfortunately for Incarnate Word, quarterback Sean Brophy’s pass was intercepted.
Then, it got worse.
Lumberjacks safety Alize Ward began returning the interception and picked up key blocks as he raced down the sideline. With seemingly nowhere to go, Ward was able to think fast and hurdle over the final defender to find the endzone.
Just like that, Stephen F. Austin earned the victory with a 67-yard walk-off pick-six.
