Bowdoin’s Improbable Touchdown Makes ESPN SportsCenter’s Top Ten Plays

The last-second touchdown pass from Mac Caputi to Daniel Barone was good enough to be the #3 play of the day on ESPN SportsCenter’s Top Ten plays from Saturday. It was the top football highlight of the day, beating out clips from Missouri-Kentucky, Syracuse-Maryland, Florida-Vanderbilt, Indiana-Illinois and Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel of Texas A&M. Watch the final three plays in the countdown below.

In actuality, the pass was just the beginning of the chaos at the end of Saturday’s game at Whittier Field as the teams combined for three scores in the final three seconds. Watch the complete highlights of the 32-22 Bowdoin win.

It marks the second time in the last three years that a Bowdoin football highlight has made SportsCenter’s Top Ten. The Polar Bears also cracked the countdown in 2011 for a pair of record-breaking interception returns against Tufts.

    Fantastic play! My four years at Bowdoin: bad news – the football team only won two games and tied one the entire four years; good news – three of the best postgame parties ever seen.
