All hell broke at the end of Saturday’s Western Michigan-Ball State game.
Western Michigan lined up for the final play, down 30-27 and began the chaotic lateral play and continued it all over the field and eventually it looked like the play came to an end as a Broncos’ ball carrier seemed to go down, sending Ball State’s sidelines into a frenzy as they ran onto the field.
But the ball was still live.
Western Michigan seemed to pull off a miracle by running it in the end zone despite nearly the entirety of the right side of the field being blocked by the Ball State sideline, yet the play was called dead due to an illegal forward pass.
With the win, Ball State football advanced to the Mid-American Conference championship game.
