Miami-Ohio 26, No. 24 Northern Illinois 21: VIDEO Of Miami's Miracle 4th And 20 Reception On Game-Winning Drive

A crazy 4th-and-20 conversion led to Armand Robinson’s 33-yard touchdown catch with 33 seconds remaining, as the Miami- Ohio RedHawks snuck past the 24th-ranked Northern Illinois Huskies, 26-21, in the Mid-American Conference Championship game at Ford Field.

Trailing by one, 21-20, the RedHawks (9-4) took over at their own 48 with 2:48 left. Two incomplete passes and a sack set up a 4th-and-20. Austin Boucher’s pass hit off the hands of a Northern Illinois defender and fell into the hands of Miami-Ohio wide receiver Chris Givens for a 31-yard gain. Two plays later, Boucher received heavy pressure, but was able to hit a wide open Robinson over the middle, and Robinson sprinted into the end zone for the go- ahead score. The score stood at 26-21 after the two-point conversion failed.

The Huskies (10-3) got the ball to the RedHawks’ 32, but Chandler Harnish was tripped up as time expired to give Miami-Ohio its first MAC championship title since 2003.
