Griz Magic Breaks Mustangs

Any University of Montana Grizzly football fan who left early Saturday will deny it. They’ll claim they were there with the rest of us to see one of the most thrilling comebacks in recent memory in Washington Grizzly Stadium. After blocking a short Cal Poly field goal attempt that would have iced the game, the Griz, trailing 14-7 with about two minutes to play, marched 88 yards in 15 plays and capped off the game-tying drive with less than 30 seconds remaining in regulation on a fourth down, two-yard touchdown pass from Jordan Johnson to Clay Pierson. Cal Poly ran out the last few seconds of regulation and we went to overtime. The Mustangs won the first overtime toss and elected to play defense. Johnson flipped a pass to Ellis Henderson for what looked like a nice gain down to the five yard line. But Henderson fought through tacklers and dove into the end zone. Cal Poly’s turn to try to tie it back up. And on third down, Griz linebacker Brock Coyle (thank you, Bozeman MT) seals the deal with an interception in the end zone. Your final: Griz 21 Mustangs 14.  I don’t think my heart has started beating again yet. What a game, what a win! Congrats, guys. Bring on Eastern Washington next Saturday! DB
