WATCH: Zack Annexstad and Tyler Johnson’s third down miracle

How a broken play became a beautiful one

NCAA Football: Fresno State at Minnesota Jesse Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

The Minnesota Golden Gophers trailed Fresno State 14-13 late in the fourth quarter. It was 3rd and 9 at their own 44-yard line, and with more little more than six minutes left in the game, another failed offensive possession would have put the Gophers in a tough spot.

Then this happened.

That play maybe works in NCAA Football for Xbox from way back when. Not in reality though. But evidently Zack Annexstad and Tyler Johnson are not of this world.

If not for that miraculous third down conversion, it’s possible, maybe even likely, that we never even get that Antoine Winfield, Jr. interception to end the game.
