In The Longest Game Ever, Watch WMU Get The Goofiest Penalty Ever
No, seven overtimes wasn’t enough to make Western’s victory extraordinary. How about the penalty they got in overtime?
In the midst of the Broncos’ record setting 71-68 seven overtime victory in Buffalo on Saturday, maybe the strangest penalty in a long time.
Western’s senior tight end Donnie Ernsberger, from Lakeview High School in Battle Creek, scored a touchdown. And out ran, according to video and reported by the ESPN announcers, his sister to celebrate with him. So WMU got a penalty and as with anyone running out onto the field, was ejected. And in all likelihood, she missed seeing the end of the longest football game in Western Michigan University history.
