STILLWATER, OKLA. - Central Michigan pulled off a miracle this afternoon that will have the college football nation buzzing all weekend.
Not bad for a team from Mount Pleasant.
It looked like John Bonamego and the Chippewas were going to come up with a hard-fought loss today in Stillwater, when No. 22 Oklahoma State was running out the clock, ahead 27-24 near midfield. But with fourth down and just four seconds remaining, OSU quarterback Mason Rudolph dropped back and threw the ball well out of bounds to run out the clock.
The officials ruled intentional grounding, since Rudolph was still in the pocket and didn't throw anywhere near an eligible receiver, and CMU was given one last untimed down to go for the win.
