It took San Diego State three overtime to escape with a win over Utah on Saturday. Utah scored a touchdown in third overtime and apparently converted the two-point conversion to tie it at 33 and send the game to quadruple overtime, but the conversion was called off and the game ended with mercy.
Wide receiver Connor O’Toole caught the ball, but he rebounded the ball and it was deemed incomplete to end the game. But before that, the two teams traded big shootout games.
The new college football overtime rules state that in the second overtime, teams must make a two-point conversion after a touchdown. If the game moves to a third overtime period, the teams will alternate two-point conversions.
Utah sent him into overtime with under 20 seconds in the fourth quarter via a touchdown pass from Cameron Rising to Theo Howard and called with a two-point conversion to tie him at 24.
San Diego State sent him to double overtime with a pass from Lucas Johnson to tight end Jay Rudolph for a touchdown to answer Utah’s score. Both teams missed field goals in second overtime and went to triple overtime tied at 33 before the possible controversial appeal over the failed two-point conversion to end it.
