Chadron State 40, Missouri S & T 34
Lane Haller’s 79-yard interception return off Miners QB Reed Brown in the second overtime won the game for 20th ranked Chadron State. The teams combined for just over 1,000 yards of total offense, with the Miners rallying three times from deficits.
The Eagles got the first possession in overtime and needed only three plays to score as Glen McLain threw a seven-yard touchdown pass. But the Miners answered right back with a four-play scoring drive, as a 19-yard pass to Melvin Stovall set up a one-yard touchdown run by Zenel Hudson to even things at 34-34. S&T took possession to open the second overtime and on the second play, Haller jumped in front of Brown’s pass and ran down the sidelines 79 yards for the game-ending score.
