On Saturday, Buffalo and Western Michigan played the highest-scoring game in FBS history, with Western Michigan pulling out a 71-68 victory after seven overtimes.
It was well after 8 o'clock Saturday night when Western Michigan's Jarvion Franklin broke up the middle 12 yards for the winning touchdown to beat Buffalo. The kicker? Ernsberger's sister got kicked out of the game for coming on to the field.
Her presence drew a flag on Western Michigan, and got her ejected from the game.
WMU tight end Donnie Ernsberger (Battle Creek Lakeview) caught a 14-yard touchdown pass in the first overtime.
Unbeaten Wilder to defend title vs Stiverne
The Haitian-born heavyweight known as, B.WARE, remains the only fighter out of 38, not to be knocked out by Wilder. He has talked up a clash with IBF and WBA champ Anthony Joshua but knows that first, he must overcome Stiverne.
Despite our new best friend's heroic efforts in grabbing that TD, then getting mobbed by his sister on national TV, it went on for six additional overtimes after the hug. 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.
Jon Wassink threw for five touchdowns and Franklin ran for 176 yards and three scores for Western Michigan.
Ernsberger caught the touchdown to tie up the game at 38, after Buffalo score on its first frame of overtime.
But just as odd as that marathon game was what happened after one of the many touchdowns. Western Michigan-Buffalo set the overtime points record of 136 points that was previously held by a four-overtime Boise State-Nevada game in 2007.
