Central Michigan and the Crazy Bahamas Bowl Finish


Okay, other than the trip to the Bahamas, we have no idea why a bowl game is played there. And based on the video, it appears nobody actually went to the game.

But boy TV viewers were treated to one of the craziest games and finishes in a long, long time.

Western Kentucky won the game over Central Michigan 49-48. But not before the Hilltoppers nearly lost it.

The Chippewas, down 49-14 scored 34 straight points in the 4th quarter, coming within one on one of the craziest plays we've ever seen. QB Cooper Rush heaved the ball downfield on a hail mary throw. One of his receivers Jesse Kroll caught it in traffic and began a series of laterals which ended in a Titus Davis scoring the Central Michigan touchdown at the buzzer.

Rather than settle for a bowl game tie, the Chippewas went for the 2-point conversion and win. It failed.

Rush set a bowl game record with 7 TD passes overshadowing Western's QB Brandon Doughty who threw for 486 yards and 5 TD's.
