Hail Mary Play Works Right Up Until The Runner Goes Out Of Bounds

Abilene Christian is in its first year playing NCAA Division I football, and as an FCS independent the Wildcats are feeding from the bottom of the bottom of the "big time" college football food chain. Despite that, they had a chance to knock off FBS team New Mexico State tonight, & came within a few yards of doing it.

NMSU's one of FBS's saddest squads, but it still would have been quite the feather in Abilene Christian's cap if they'd pulled this off. Alas, needing to go 79 yards on the final play to win, they only went 73. Better luck next time, chumps! (We never really did figure out what the flag was for.) [AggieVision]
