Eastern Washington produced a dramatic overtime win over North Dakota State in the quarterfinals of the FCS playoffs at Roos Field on Saturday, Dec. 11, 2010.
Trailing by a touchdown with the snow-covered end zone a distant 90 yards away, Taiwan Jones huddled under a parka on the sideline with an injury and just less than 2 1/2 minutes left on the clock, even Eastern Washington University’s No. 1-ranked football team hardly looked up to the daunting challenge it was facing late Saturday afternoon. Especially with Bo Levi Mitchell having perhaps his worst day as a college quarterback.
Bo Levi Mitchell threw a 25-yard touchdown pass to Tyler Hart on the first play of overtime and Eastern Washington recovered a goal-line fumble by quarterback Brock Jensen to beat North Dakota State 38-31 in the quarterfinals of the FCS playoffs Saturday at Cheney.
