The finish was incredible and had everyone making comparisons to another epic game – Super Bowl XXXIV between the Rams and the Titans.

College football fans were reminded of that contest on Saturday night.
Oh my goodness, that was like a Titans-Rams Super Bowl XXXIV moment!

The score was similar, too. The Rams beat the Titans, 23-16, in that Super Bowl game, while Coastal Carolina beat BYU, 22-17, on Saturday night..
It’ll be tough to top that finish moving forward, but the college football world is certainly going to try.
