Western Michigan outlasts Buffalo in crazy 7OT game

Western Michigan and Buffalo took #MACtion to the extreme Saturday afternoon. The teams played in a game that lasted more than four hours and ended as the highest-scoring game in FBS history.

Western Michigan eventually pulled out the win, 71-68, in the seventh overtime.

Buffalo started the final OT with possession, and the Bulls had to settle for a field goal. On Western Michigan’s possession, the Broncos were able to get into the end zone. Here is how the game finally ended:

The game, which aired on ESPNU, was the longest ever for both programs, and the longest game in the history of the Mid-American Conference. It was only the fourth time in FBS history that a game went seven overtimes.

Buffalo fell to 3-3, and Western Michigan improved to 4-2. It’s a shame either team had to lose.
