Moment #10: Starting to Implode

After Josh Martin’s brutal sack of Cornell QB Jeff Mathews, the Lion offense suddenly went into a tailspin that erased all the team’s momentum in a flash.

Actually on the possession before the big sack, Columbia QB Sean Brackett had thrown an interception, and after a three-and-out following the sack the Big Red got a field goal to take a 10-7 lead.

On the first play from scrimmage after the FG, Brackett threw another pick that was returned to the Lion six.

Two Luke Hagy runs later, it was 17-7 Cornell with 55 seconds left in the half.

Now down by 10 and reeling from two rapid fire interceptions, Brackett and Lions looked like they were about to collapse.

But looks can be deceiving…
