Going into a heady 20-plus mph wind, the No. 21 Dickinson State football team elected to pass on fourth-and-19 from the Mayville State 23 yard line. After getting sacked by speedy defensive end Tyler Gay on the previous play, junior quarterback Hayden Gibson caught the snap and backed up three steps. He glanced up the middle, but fired quickly down to the right. The ball flew over sophomore receiver Tyger Frye, looking like it would be out of bounds, but in the far corner of the north end zone, senior wideout Randy Ivey came up with the catch.

Down 23-22 in the fourth quarter, the Dickinson State football team just needed a field goal to top Waldorf University (Iowa) on Saturday, Oct. 6, and they had six minutes and 27 seconds to do it. However, on their first drive, the Blue Hawks couldn't earn a first down, punting the ball away. Matt Perez, junior defensive lineman: "We had a lot of chances to come back. I never think (we're out of it). We just got to play and execute." With 1:52 left, the Dickinson State offense started what would presumably be their final attempt from their own 2-yard line.
