After the Bronchos (4-4) blocked an Ichabod punt to take over at Washburn 41-yard-line, UCO needed only two plays to take a 17-16 lead with just over three minutes to play in the game.

However, on the ensuing kickoff Letcher returned the ball 90 yards to paydirt as the Ichabods went back in front 22-17 (conversion failed).
With the Ichabods holding a five-point lead, Central Oklahoma drove to the Washburn 20, but UCO's Keats Cahool was sacked at the 25 by Malick Fall and Rose picked up the ball and ran 75 yards for the game-clinching score, staking the Ichabods to a 29-17 lead with nine seconds left.
