Central Michigan’s win was so miraculous it admitted defeat on Twitter

Saturday September 10th, 2016

The confusion was warranted, it turns out. The game should have ended after CMU sent the first tweet but the refs messed up and gave the Chips one untimed down. Central Michigan took advantage of the officiating blunder and threw a game-winning Hail Mary. 

Or, as the Chippewas put it on Twitter: 

Don’t worry, Chips, we won’t tell anyone the play never should have happened.
