Mama Margie’s Major Meltdown: Air Force
Every Thursday Sports Grind Entertainment will present you with the Mama Margie’s Major Meltdown. The recipient of this honor goes to Air Force in their unsuccessful attempt of a trick play at the Military Bowl. The game went back and forth with everything from a kickoff return for 87 yards. A pitch around the left end for 60, touchdown passes for 49 and 37 yards, multiple touchdowns scored on fourth downs and even a pair of botched onside kicks. Toledo and Air Force ran up the score early and often Wednesday at the Military Bowl and played to a wild finish, decided only when Air Force’s 2-point conversion attempt went awry with 52 seconds to play to give Toledo a 42-41 victory.
Air Force lined up to kick the extra point after Zach Kauth’s 33-yard touchdown catch on fourth-and-3 pulled the Falcons within a point. But holder David Baska ran the option instead and fumbled the ball toward kicker Parker Herrington, who chased it until it went out of bounds in the end zone.
