Turning the tide

Some huge hits here and you can battle it out in the comments. But even for the momentum shift alone, Linfield's Spencer Payne's 39-yard punt return of Hampden-Sydney's 39-yard punt gets the nod. The Wildcats trailed 21-3 at one point and 21-10 at the point of the play but rallied to win 31-21. 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.
