This 2 games were great and you probaly did not here about them

 

Army's 20-17 victory in overtime against Tulane didn't have the far-reaching ramifications of Stanford's stunner, but the Black Knights worked just as hard for an improbable win Saturday at Michie Stadium in West Point, N.Y.

 

 

 

Trailing 17-10 with 29 seconds left, Army took possession at its 20-yard line. Quarterback Kevin Dunn, a third-stringer and former walk-on, completed passes of 27 and 17 yards to move his team to the Tulane 36 with four seconds to go. On the last play of regulation, Dunn lofted a pass into the end zone and it was tipped by two defenders before Army receiver Mike Wright lunged and caught it for a touchdown to force overtime.

 

 

Army's Owen Tolson kicked a 25-yard field goal to put the Black Knights ahead 20-17, and Tulane missed a 34-yard field goal at the end of its overtime possession. Army is 3-3 under first-year coach Stan Brock, matching its victory total from last season.

 

And this game

 

Few late-game plans have backfired as miserably as the one Western Michigan tried against Akron on Saturday at Waldo Stadium in Kalamazoo, Mich. The Broncos had a 38-31 lead in the final seconds and faced fourth-and-12 at their 5. Instead of punting the football to the Zips, Broncos coach Bill Cubit instructed quarterback Jamarko Simmons to take the snap and run through the back of the end zone. The self-inflicted safety made the score 38-33 with 15 seconds to play.

 

 

Western Michigan's Jim Laney handled the ensuing free kick, and Akron's Alphonso Owen fielded the kick at the Zips' 11. He ran toward the left sideline, then flipped the football to Andre Jones near the Akron 25. Jones ran the length of the field for the game-winning touchdown on the final play of a remarkable 39-38 victory.

 

 

"Obviously, it was just unbelievable," a stunned Cubit told reporters after the game. "I don't know what else to say. ... I can't even describe the feeling in how we feel right now. I thought we had him tackled. I'll be honest, I didn't see much of the final play."

 

i DID take it from Mark Schlabach but I think you need to know
