No. 2 Cincinnati survives with late goal-line stand

On a day the college football world got a televised picture postcard from Cincinnati, the Bearcats got out to a 14-0 start against Tulsa, sputtered in the second quarter, pulled away, then sputtered again.

It would come down to a pair of late possessions by Tulsa, both stopped. After fumbling away what looked like their final possession, the Bearcats defense stopped the Golden Hurricane four straight times. Steven Anderson’s last rush was fumbled in the end zone and recovered by senior Jabari Taylor to secure UC’s 28-20 Homecoming triumph over Tulsa.

See, hear Doncic’s game-winning shot vs. Celtics from multiple angles

We all knew a Luka Magic apperance in Doncic’s fourth season would simply be a matter of when, not if.

The first flash finally appeared Saturday night when Doncic drained a game-winning three-pointer to lift the Mavericks over the Celtics, 107-104.

Fourth-quarter Doncic has become bad luck for Boston lately. In two home games against the Celtics this calendar year, Doncic has nailed two game-winning, buzzer-beating 3-pointers. The latest capped his best offensive performance of the season — 33 points, nine rebounds and five assists on 12 of 21 field goals — and helped the Mavericks stave off the Celtics’ late upset threat.

Relive the magical moment with videos showing the buzzer-beater from alternate angles and see reactions from across the sports world:
