The Bulldawgs came back from a 13-0 deficit to win in the final four seconds of the game stunning the visiting Rockets and their fans.
Lost in the shuffle of all of Brent Garner's heroics was the nearly automatic kicking off of the foot of Kyle Mathews. Mathews nailed a 28-yard field goal in the second quarter to pull the Dawgs to within 13-10 at halftime and then kicked the game-winning extra point to seal the victory.
