Video: Miami Knocks Off Duke on Craziest Play of the Year

By 11W Staff on October 31, 2015 at 11:08 pm

Throughout my life, I have often wondered what sports would have been like if Twitter existed in the old days, like say Cal and Stanford's "The band is on the field!" play almost 35 years ago. 

Tonight, Twitter had its Cal-Stanford moment.

No. 22 Duke played Miami, who entered the game with a new coach and reeling from a devastating 58-0 loss at home a week ago.

With six seconds to play, the Blue Devils appeared to have sealed the game, taking a 27-24 lead on a one-yard touchdown run by quarterback Thomas Sirk.

Then the impossible happened.

The play was reviewed for almost 10 minutes as officials looked for knees being down, laterals being illegal and blocks in the back that did or didn't happen. Heck, even the official review had an official review.

After the review's review, Miami's eight-lateral, 75-yard kickoff return touchdown stood and the Canes are leaving Durham as winners.
