With the Beavers trailing 38-34 and on the verge of scoring on 3rd and goal from the one-yard line, starting quarterback Tristan Gebbia was injured trying to punch the ball in, coming up about six inches short. It meant 4th and about six inches for OSU, but Gebbia was carried off the field clearly in pain.
So what happens now, and what play do you call?? Backup quarterback Chance Nolan enters the game, and scores on this quarterback sneak to give his team the lead on his very first Division I FBS college football play. Against their biggest rival. With the Pac-12’s hopes of the College Football Playoff on the line (SPOILER ALERT: they’re gone).

Nolan was 9-2 last season as a Juco at Saddleback College, and was ranked as the #1 dual threat QB by Rivals amongst the JC class. We can vouch for one end of the dual threat, as clearly he can run it.
The Beavers closed as a 13-point underdog at DraftKings Sportsbook.
