The Rutgers-SMU matchup wasn’t one of the weekend’s most-anticipated games, but this American Athletic Conference game was an entertaining, three-overtime affair.
The Scarlet Knights led 21-0, and the Mustangs rallied to cut the deficit to 21-14 early in the third quarter.
SMU rallied once again after trailing 35-14 late in the third, with quarterback Garrett Gilbert connecting with receiver Jeremy Johnson on a 13-yard touchdown passes with just over a minute to go.
After Johnson’s touchdown catch, the Mustangs needed a two-point play to tie. And if you haven’t seen it, this conversion is easily one of the best two-point plays in recent memory.
