And despite falling 63-56, the Beef made it more than interesting down the stretch.
Omaha used a six-yard jet sweep by wide receiver Jonathan Ray to take its first lead, 48-47, with 1:58 remaining. After rapid-fire scoring in the closing moments, a Sioux City field goal with two seconds left would send the game to overtime.
Omaha won the overtime coin toss, but that’d be its last victory of the night.
The Bandits used a quick touchdown by Dominique Carson to go ahead. After flipping the field, Sioux City forced Omaha into a third-down situation and the Beef threw a game-ending interception.
Omaha, which fell behind 13-0 to open the game, trailed by as many as 16 points.
