The inaugural Bahamas Bowl between the Central Michigan Chippewas and the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers featured arguably the greatest ending to a bowl game ever. Western Kentucky led 49-14 at the start of the 4th quarter. Then Central Michigan scored. 49-21. Cool, good for them. CMU scored again. 49-28. Anyone getting lunch after this? CMU scored again. 49-35. At least they’re not going down without a fight. CMU scored again. 49-42. Wait, what? Then, on the final play, this happened…
WHAT IS GOING ON?! THE BAHAMAS BOWL IS ALL THAT IS RIGHT IN THE WORLD! IT’S A CHRISTMAS EVE MIRACLE!
Now you’re probably asking, “WHAT HAPPENED NEXT?! DID THEY GO INTO OVERTIME AND PLAY 17 OVERTIMES TRADING SCORES BACK-AND-FORTH?!”
Central Michigan went for two. They threw a fade into the corner of the endzone that fell incomplete. Good thing, too. It’s not like they had ALL THE MOMENTUM IN THE WORLD (INCLUDING 34 STRAIGHT UNANSWERED POINTS) TO CARRY INTO OVERTIME WITH THEM.
This would’ve been the greatest comeback in college football bowl history. The previous record was Texas Tech’s 31-point comeback over Minnesota in the 2006 Insight Bowl.
