College football continues, and Saturday it was a battle of the Mines: South Dakota hosting Colorado.
The Hardrockers were 3-and-3 heading into the game, and 0-and-16 against the Colorado Mines.

The Hardrockers trailing by 9 in the first quarter, Jake Sullivan hits freshman Brandon LaBrie, who battles his his way 25 big yards before being taken down.

The South Dakota Mines keep pushing down the field, this time it's Sullivan on the quarterback keeper. He runs it in from 2 yards out for the touchdown. The extra point brings the score to 16-14 Orediggers.

Now with under a minute to go in the first half, the Orediggers moving the ball. Zac Guy on the carry, and he gets it down to the 1-yard line.

On the next play, that guy, Zac Guy gets the ball again and punches it in for the 1-yard touchdown. The extra point extends Colorado's lead 24-14.

Now with 5 seconds to go, the Hardrockers look to get on the board one last time before the half. Back up kicker, Enis Sefa on the 36 yard attempt. It hits the left upright, and takes a lucky bounce in for 3.

The South Dakota School on Mines came back for the win, 37-29, beating the Colorado Mines for the first time in history.
