A Sunday sprint

More news about: Montclair State

In the second overtime of a rare Sunday game, Montclair State sophomore Billy Merz stepped in front of a pass from Brockport State's Joe Scibilia and took it 100 yards to the end zone, lifting the Red Hawks to the 55-49 win. It's the Play of the Week.

The Play of the Week is sponsored by the City of Salem, hosts of Stagg Bowl XL. Tickets on sale now.
