News from Lindsey Wilson College
COLUMBIA, Ky. - A seven-yard touchdown rush by Jalen Sublett in overtime carried No. 8-ranked Lindsey Wilson football past No. 10-ranked Grand View (Iowa) 34-27 on Saturday afternoon in the NAIA Football Championship Series First Round at Blue Raider Stadium.
The victory advances the Blue Raiders (11-1) to their second all-time appearance in the FCS Quarterfinals. Quarterfinal pairings will be announced on Sunday. Lindsey Wilson improves to 2-0 all-time in home playoff games, and 2-2 overall in the postseason.
The scoring run capped a six-play drive in the first overtime period and gave the Blue Raiders (11-1) their first overtime victory since the 2013 season.
The Vikings (9-3) needed a touchdown to extend the game, but a fumbled snap and a sack by Mikquail Baskett pushed Grand View back to fourth down and 26. On the final play of the game, quarterback Jordan Knock heaved a deep ball that fell harmlessly to the ground at the 10-yard line.
Jared Dougherty completed on a 33-yard field goal with 6:42 remaining in the game to tie the affair at 27-27. The freshman kicker missed from the same distance on the previous Lindsey Wilson drive.
Grand View reached midfield twice in the remaining six minutes, but the Blue Raider defense held firm - forcing a turnover on downs and intercepting a Knock pass. Tony Brackins came up with the interception just inside Lindsey Wilson territory with only 1:13 remaining in regulation.
The Blue Raiders had a shot at winning the game, but their ensuing drive went only two yards in three plays, ending with a punt.
With the ball at their own four-yard line and 27 seconds on the clock, the Vikings attempted to march down the field, gaining 16 yards until the period ended, sending the game into overtime.
Lindsey Wilson overcame a slow start - gaining only 55 yards in the first quarter - to take a 17-10 lead into halftime.
Grand View scored the first points of the game on a 24-yard field goal by Joey Nissen with 3:31 left in the first quarter.
Dougherty put the Blue Raiders on the board with a kick from 25 yards out at the 12:09 mark in the second quarter.
Lindsey Wilson needed only one play to reach the end zone on their next possession. Dylan Beasley connected with Sublett for an 82-yard touchdown strike, putting the Blue Raiders up 10-3. Sublett snuck out of the backfield straight through the heart of the Viking defense and won the footrace to the endzone. The completion was the fourth-longest in program history.
The two teams traded touchdowns, taking a 20-20 game late into the third quarter. Nissen's second field goal of the game put the Vikings up 20-17 with 3:20 left in the third.
Beasley responded just 67 second later, connecting with Hunter Lovell from 37 yards out to cap a four-play, 90-yard drive.
The junior quarterback completed 18 of his 33 attempts on Saturday for 305 yards and two scores, earning Offensive Player of the Game honors.
Jordan Cheatem punched it in from seven yards in the final second of the third quarter, pulling the Vikings ahead 27-24.
Cheatem rushed for a game-high 150 yards and two touchdowns on 32 attempts.
D'Andre Hart shared the game-high with 11 tackles - three for a loss - and one sack and earned Defensive Player of the Game honors.
Grand View out-gained Lindsey Wilson 451-414 with the Blue Raiders holding a 305-267 edge in the passing game.
The NAIA FCS Quarterfinal matchups will be released on Sunday by the national office.
