    No team proved the ability to do it that year.
    The 2013 team was down 23-10 to UNI at the end of 3 quarters and scored a touchdown with less than 3 minutes left. Sounds beatable to me.

    Watching the replay of the onside kick....

    On the first attempt (Bison offsides penalty), if Ben Ellefson doesn't make that great block on EWU's Sam McPherson, he (McPherson) has a good chance of grabbing the ball out of the air on the run. Darrius Shepherd would have had a hard time stopping, changing direction, and catching him.

    Were they beat? Did UNI prove they could by beating them?

    A football game is 60 minutes long. I was at that game in 2013. Bison had more yards, first downs and dominated the TOP. They were the better football team. UNI kept it close, but getting close only matters in horseshoes.

    Kicking team can't advance ANY kick (kickoff, punt, try or FG) unless it's a scrimmage kick that has not crossed the neutral zone. The kick ends when it is possessed by either team or is otherwise dead by rule. So if the receiving team possesses it and then fumbles it, it's no longer a kick and recovery by the kicking team allows them to advance it. If a punt or FG or try is blocked and the kicking team recovers it before it crosses the neutral zone, they can advance it.

    Yesterday the Bison had more yards, first downs, and dominated the TOP. And yet you think EWU that lost by 14 proved that the Bison were beatable. Okay.

    Take a look at the last EWU drive where they scored quickly, on about the 2nd play of that drive the slot receiver on the right lined up off sides and there was no flag.

    Ha, after reading it again I finally caught the sarcasm. My mistake and apologies.
