Today’s FCS matchup between No. 4 South Dakota State and No. 19 South Dakota came to a close with a stunning finish on Saturday.
With one second remaining on the clock, South Dakota had one final shot at the end zone from around its own 40-yard line. Rolling out to the right, freshman quarterback Carson Camp launched a desperation Hail Mary down the field.
The pass came up short, coming in contact with a defender’s hands at around the five-yard line. But after a couple more bounces on top of the scrum, the ball made its way into the end zone and into the arms of freshman wide receiver Jeremiah Webb.
The miraculous play resulted in a touchdown and a 23-20 upset victory over the Jackrabbits.
