On Saturday, Buffalo and Western Michigan played the highest-scoring game in FBS history, with Western Michigan pulling out a 71-68 victory after seven overtimes.

Western Michigan and Buffalo played to a record-tying seven overtimes with a record-breaking 139 total points in the Broncos' 71-68 win on Saturday. And denied Western Michigan and Buffalo an overtime record all to themselves.

The two teams traded the lead back and forth all game long.

The woman in an Ernsberger jersey drew a penalty flag and was later ejected from the game. Johnson finished with 11 catches for 195 yards and two TDs, Holsey had six catches for 143 yards and one score and Osborn had seven receptions for 138 yards three touchdowns.

Teams are required to go for two-point conversions on touchdowns after the first two overtime periods, which means frequent chances for the teams to land on different point totals and end the game.

2 - Western Michigan players over 100 yards rushing; Franklin with 176 and LeVante Bellamy with 131.

The game that seemed like it lasted forever ended so abruptly that neither team was quite sure how to respond when it did.

In the seventh overtime, Buffalo settled for a 25-yard field goal, opening the door for Western Michigan to end the game short of a record-setting eighth overtime.

"This was probably the most exciting game I've ever been a part of", Leipold said, his voice cracking with emotion.
