Long day: Western beats Buffalo in septuple OT

Western Michigan beats Buffalo 71-68 in a record-tying 7 overtimes WMU beats Buffalo in record-tying 7 overtimes, setting new FBS scoring record
Spencer Simpson | 09 October, 2017, 00:29

By the way, in the third overtime, Buffalo fumbled, meaning all WMU needed was a field goal, but the Broncos missed that kick.

But Donnie surely appreciates the unparalleled support from his sister, and Western Michigan still won the game...

The hosts tied the game 31-31 with 34 seconds remaining, but Western Michigan managed to get into position to win in regulation.

That gave Western Michigan the opportunity to win on the next drive. In the end, the defending MAC champion Broncos survived after missing two previous chances to win earlier in the game to move to 4-2 on the year while Buffalo fell to 3-3 at the midway point of the season.

597 - Passing yards for Buffalo quarterback Drew Anderson against Western Michigan. This would have been the seventh-highest-scoring FBS game in the nation over the weekend, just on overtime points alone. He completed 25 of 41 passes for 474 yards and three TDs in regulation. The junior backup hooked up with Kamithi Holsey for 72 yards on their first play from scrimmage, a 64-yard TD to Jacob Martinez, a 53-yard catch and run with Anthony Johnson and a 54-yard gem to K.J. Osborn.

Ernsberger caught a touchdown in overtime, and it is possible his sister thought the game was over with the score. "We battled and battled and didn't make enough plays there at the end and came up a little bit short".

It's not often a football team scores 71 points, and has to rally on its last possession.
