Championship dream falls short for Bryan Bennett, SELU, but former Duck sparks huge turnaround …

USATSI 7427803 168380293 lowresBryan Bennett made Sports Center, but the dream ended for him and the Southeastern Louisiana State as they fell 20-17 to New Hampshire in the quarterfinals of the FCS playoffs Saturday night at Strawberry Stadium in Hammond, Louisiana.

The former Duck quarterback’s wild, scrambling, touchdown pass to Marquis Fruge’ was the #1 highlight in ESPN’s Top Ten Plays, but the Lions were eliminated when Wildcat quarterback Sean Goldrich scored on a 2-yard keeper with 47 seconds to go in the game.

Bennett drove his team 80 yards in 14 plays to take a 17-14 lead with 5:12 left, throwing the miraculous td to Fruge’ on 4th and 5, but NH answered with an 80-yard drive of their own for the win (Kevin Jairaj, USA Today Sports Images).
