Mitch Hendricks is cool under pressure. He threw two touchdown passes in the final 29 seconds, rallying host Gustavus Adolphus past Concordia (Moorhead) 41-34 on Saturday.
Hendricks went 25-of-41 for 363 yards and four scores. The senior actually had two chances to win the game. His 6-yard TD pass to Gabe Boyce with 29 seconds to go got Gustavus (7-2, 5-2 MIAC) within 34-33, but his two-point conversion pass fell incomplete.
The Gusties then got another chance when they recovered an onside kick at the 50. Hendricks found Boyce for 17 yards and two plays later threw the go-ahead 33-yard strike to George Buchner with 14 seconds left.
Brandon Zylstra caught two TDs for the Cobbers (7-3, 5-3).
St. Thomas 80, Carleton 3: Tucker Trettel and Jordan Roberts each ran for over 100 yards and combined for six TDs as the No. 5 Tommies (9-0, 7-0) earned at least a share of the MIAC title by rolling up 628 yards of offense vs. the Knights (1-8, 0-7). Backup Alex Fenske threw three TD passes.
Augsburg 35, Hamline 26: Ayrton Scott threw for two TDs and ran for another two as the Auggies (4-5, 3-4) beat the Pipers (3-6, 1-6).
