Western Michigan Orchestrated Unbelievable Win Against Toledo Rockets

It will definitely be talked about this week. It was a phenomenal play and I have never seen anything like it. It was one of those where you scratch your head and say to yourself, “Just when I thought I had seen everything…”

Western Michigan played the Toledo Rockets tonight at home and for a moment, it seemed as if Toledo had the game wrapped up with less than a minute on the clock and the score was in their favor 38-34. Western Michigan had just scored, but they missed the extra point so it seemed all but impossible to find the win.

But that was before a very successful onside kick in which they got the ball back. At this point, they needed a touchdown. A field goal just wasn’t going to do. So, they got to work. Eleby threw a few down and outs that got them down to about the 30. Then, Eleby connected with Eskridge across the middle who took it to the 9.

That’s when the magic happened. Eleby ran to the 9 signaling spike all the way. His line got set. His center hiked him the ball. But Eleby didn’t spike it.

No. While Toledo was standing around with their thumbs up their collective asses, Jaylen Hall was quietly tip-toeing to the endzone where Eleby found him wide open. No one in the world saw that play coming. Even the commentators were confused.

The refs threw their hands up, TOUCHDOWN! Western Michigan went from 38-34 to 38-41 to pull out one of the most remarkable wins that people won’t be able to stop talking about for a long time.

I don’t know if they practiced that or just were all in one mind at that time, but it was remarkable. You’d have to watch it yourself to believe it…
