Video: The Division III "Cortaca Jug Miracle"

The only way to describe how Cortland (D-III - NY) managed to pull out a last second win over Ithaca (D-III - NY) is "legendary". So many things go wrong on this play, and then a beam of light cuts through all of the smoky chaos.

After rushing their field goal unit on the field with the clock running down from 20 seconds, down three points, the holder momentarily forgot that he was on the unit.

Then, in about 10 seconds that holder goes from scorn role player to hero - and instant rivalry game (and small campus) legend.

Watch how it all plays out, courtesy of This is just unbelievable.

Not surprisingly, this was their Play of the Week, and is one of those plays that will be talked about for decades to come.
