Western Michigan TE's sister celebrates TD on field, ejected

Jarvion Franklin denied us the glory of watching eight overtimes. More

The game took seven overtimes to finish, tying it for the longest game in the history of the Football Bowl Subdivision.

How could anyone pull themselves away from such a slugfest on a attractive afternoon that turned into a gorgeous evening for football at UB Stadium?

Buffalo and Western Michigan combined for 1,328 total yards - 866 yards passing and 12 touchdown passes.

The game in Buffalo was tied at 31 going into the first overtime and 38 going into double overtime.

Western remains unbeaten in conference play.

Regardless, it looks as if Ernsberger will be able to hold this over his sister's head for quite a while - but perhaps not as long if she had cost them the game. Little did anybody know that less than half of the game's scoring would actually be done in regulation.

Apparently the sister of Western Michigan TE Donnie Ernsberger got a bit too excited after his touchdown.

Her presence drew a flag on Western Michigan, and got her ejected from the game.

Only Tampa Bay has garnered fewer than Carolina's 118 penalty yards against, and the Buccaneers have only played three games. Both players were limited practice participants on Friday and are among the four players listed as questionable by the team.

Finally, with the Broncos needing a field goal to tie, with fans watching the game expecting as much and hoping the game continued deep into the night, Franklin found a hole in the middle of UB's defense and stretched across the goal line, leaving the Bulls in tears as they attempted to digest the outcome.

40-37 - What the two teams scored Saturday after the clock hit 0:00 in regulation.

Western Michigan went on to pull out a 71-68 victory.

It's not often a football team scores 71 points, and has to rally on its last possession. Both teams scored touchdowns and missed two-pointers in the fifth and sixth overtimes. The Broncos were assessed a 15-yard penalty.

But just as odd as that marathon game was what happened after one of the many touchdowns.

Jarvion Franklin won Western Michigan the game vs. Buffalo.

And as Buffalo coach Lance Leipold said in defeat, "As I told the team, at 53 years old, I've been to a lot of football games in my career and this is probably the most exciting game I've ever been a part of".
