Here's the tip

Franklin defensive back LaDarrius Calvin had his hands on Conner Sheehan's pass but couldn't hold onto it and Donovan Brown took it in for a 44-yard touchdown, giving Bluffton an improbable upset. It's the D3football.com Play of the Week.

We solicit video of top plays from every Division III football program and this was our top clip.

Week 10 Play of the Week finalists

  • McDaniel plays the tip as well as freshman Britton Hastings catches the game-winning two-point conversion off the tip with 17 seconds left in regulation for McDaniel's 43-42 win at Susquehanna. Watch
  • Millsaps' Semmes White forces a fumble which teammate Nick Arnold returns for a TD, sparking a comeback against Centre and keeping Millsaps in line for a playoff bid. Watch
  • Similar to last week's winner, Cornell uses a blocked kick return to play spoiler as Jeffery Bollnow blocks an attempt at a game-winning field goal by unbeaten Illinois College and returns it all the way for six to lift Cornell in overtime. Watch
  • As part of that crazy finish in the Bowdoin-Colby game, Daniel Barone had the ball just long enough for Bowdoin to take the lead on a 43-yard Hail Mary with three seconds left in a win against its archrival. Watch
