The 10 best finishes in the D3football.com era


The end of the Bethel-Concordia game got us thinking about some of the great finishes we've seen or heard of in covering Division III football on D3football.com. So, since 1999, here's the 10 best.

To qualify, it had to happen on the last play of the game. No Stagg Bowl-winning field goals with one second left, no crazy pick-sixes on a cold day in Pennsylvania with nine seconds to go, and no leaping catch by a tight end with the snow coming down in Alliance.

Some of these should be familiar to all Division III football fans, but some even we needed a memory jog to recall. Here's the list:
