The most notable moment of Thursday night's game might have been the final seconds, but it was the buildup that shouldn't be forgotten.

Your Kent State Golden Flashes were staring down a 27-6 deficit with 7:43 left in the fourth quarter as they stood first and goal against Buffalo Bison. The Thursday night #maction had, at that point, failed to live up to what most assumed would be a high-scoring affair. The hometown Flashes would lose. And with that, they'd fall to 3-7 on the season.

And then KSU scored a touchdown. And then they recovered an onside kick. And then they scored another touchdown. And then they blocked a punt. And then they scored ANOTHER touchdown. And, somehow, after seven minutes and forty-two seconds of comeback football, Kent State lined up for a 44-yard field goal with one second on the clock to win the game and cap off the absolutely stunner of a comeback.

If you want to watch the whole comeback, dig in below.
