Keeping playoff hopes alive

More news about: Louisiana College

With Louisiana College trailing with 3.6 seconds left, the Wildcats saw their slim playoff hopes nearly evaporate. That is, until Jamie Bunting found Cortland Bell in the end zone for the score. It's the Play of the Week.

The Play of the Week is sponsored by the City of Salem, hosts of Stagg Bowl XL. Tickets on sale now.

We solicit video of top plays from every Division III football program and this was our top clip.
