Central Michigan nearly pulled off the impossible Wednesday in the Bahamas Bowl against Western Kentucky. Down 49-42 with 1 second left and the ball at their own 25-yard line, the Chippewas needed a miracle. I think this qualifies:
Now trailing by a point, CMU went for the win, sending out the offense for the 2-point attempt. This is how it ended:
Final: Western Kentucky 49, Central Michigan 48.
CMU rallied from a 49-14 2nd-half deficit, which included a 34-point 4th quarter on 5 touchdown passes from Cooper Rush.
Here’s the final box score and stats.
