We have a selection of the ten worst sports beats of the past year.
1. Duquesne over Penn State:
Duquesne was looking good to win the match as the score was tied at 67 points with only about five seconds to go. However, due to a rather terrible show from the coach of Duquesne, Penn State got six free throws which sealed their fate, and they won with a score of 73-67.
2. Louisiana State over Arkansas:
The Louisiana team allowed Arkansas to score a touchdown and bridge the gap down to 24-17. Louisiana also went down twice instead of trying to devise a way to score and lost the match that they would have otherwise won.
3. Michigan over Florida:
Florida was too benevolent choosing not to foul Michigan over Duncan Robinson. The team was trailing by 4 points and had only eleven seconds to spare. Their benevolence cost them the match.
4. Dolphins over Bengals:
The Bengals were ahead of the Dolphins by 24-0 in the fourth quarter. They were looking to win with a point of 27-17. Michael Johnson from the Dolphins tied the match as he scored.
5. Rams over Packers:
The Rams were leading over the Packers with less than a minute to spare. However, Todd Gurley decided to stop at the 4-yard line making sure that his opponents did not manage to convert this opportunity to a win.
6. Kansas over Seton Hall:
Graham got a chance of two free throws, getting Kansas to lead by 7 points in the very last seconds. However, Seton Hall pulled off a winner with a 3 pointer just as the buzzer sounded, sealing a win for his team.

UC Davis was leading the score, but luck was with Colorado as they got 26 back-to-back points to cover their losses to win with a score of 49-36 in their favor.
8. Oregon over Standford:
Stanford was losing the match even in the second half before upping their game. They reduced the gap between points by 31-28 in the last minutes, and Jet Toner shot a goal bringing the match to overtime where Oregon finally lost.

Bowling Green pulled off a thriller in the last 91 second to win big with a score of 31-17. The quarterback of the Falcons, Grant Loy scored a high pass to place the final scores at 38-23.
10. Air Force over Wyoming:
The Air Force was winning by 13 points before Wyoming scored two touchdowns to lead by one point at 28-27. The Air Force also forfeited their holding penalty which would have otherwise given them a chance to tie with the Air Force.
