The Towson Tigers looked to pull off another upset in the NCAA Division I football championship semifinals, when they made the trip to Roos Field in Chaney, Washington to take on the Eastern Washington Eagles.
Everyone was aware of the talented Towson running back, Terrence West, but it was the team’s quarterback Connor Frazier who came up big when the team needed him the most.
Towson got off to an early 21-0 lead to begin the game, before Eastern Washington scored right before the half.
When the third quarter kicked off, the Eagles were able to take all of the momentum and work their way to a ten point lead over Towson, 31-21. However, you can never count anyone out.
Towson was able to get back within a fied goal and they had a final shot to get the win, after Eastern Washington failed to convert on a fourth down conversion. That is when Frazier came in to his own for the Tigers.
Frazier went 5-for-5 on the final drive as he led the Tigers to the one yard line with under thirty seconds left.
West was stuffed at the goal line, but the Tigers had a timeout remaining and they were able to stop the clock. When Towson lined back up for a final shot at the endzone to go ahead, they were able to punch it in for the touchdown on a quarterback keeper from Frazier.
With the win, Towson will now advance to the championship game against North Dakota State.
