While You Were Tailgating: 5 Things You Have To See From The Weekend
Here's what you missed while you were going all "Steph Curry with the shot" into some solo cups.
1. Allen Lazard Makes An Insane Catch -- Cyclones Shocks OU
Iowa State was a 28-point road underdog against No. 3 Oklahoma on Saturday before Cyclones quarterback Jacob Park was ruled out indefinitely with undisclosed personal medical concerns. (We told you that was way too high, by the way.) Park's backup is also the team's starting middle linebacker, Joel Lanning.
So with a linebacker spelling fifth-year third-string quarterback Kyle Kempt, the Cyclones rallied from a 24-10 deficit by essentially scoring at will in the second half to spoil the Sooners' perceived playoff run.
The go-ahead score in ISU's 38-31 upset? This ridiculous grab by Allen Lazard:
2. Western Michigan And Buffalo Score Approximately A Million Points
The Broncos and Bulls combined for an FBS record 139 points in Western Michigan's 71-68 win on Saturday -- and that wasn't even the craziest part of their game.
WMU tight end Donnie Ernsberger caught a touchdown pass in the first of seven overtimes to tie the game (after the extra point). Ernsberger's sister went a little nuts:
The Broncos were flagged for the excessive celebration (seriously), and the overly enthusiastic sister was kicked out of the game (seriously, seriously). Western Michigan managed to convert the longer PAT and the game continued… for six additional overtimes.
3. The Eagles Put Together One Of The Best Celebrations Of The Year
The Philadelphia Eagles rolled against the continually disappointing Arizona Cardinals 34-7 on Sunday at home. That's less important than this:
Yabo. Best end-zone celebration of the year to date. Not even a question.
4. Western Kentucky Spoils Mike Price's UTEP Homecoming
At 71 years young, Mike Price was summoned out of retirement to lead his former program against C-USA favorite Western Kentucky on Saturday -- and UTEP gave the Hilltoppers all they wanted before falling 15-14.
The Miners led 14-8 before Mike White scored off a read-option keeper with 7:24 to play in the third quarter to give the Tops a 15-14 lead. From there, both defenses stood real strong.

5. Miami's Kendrick Norton Plays Air Guitar -- On James Blackman's Leg
What more do you really need to know? This is hilarious:
Miami snapped a seven-game losing streak to Florida State with the 24-20 victory on Saturday. The Seminoles (1-3, 1-2 ACC) have now suffered consecutive home losses for the first time since 1974.
