CHARLESTON, Ill. -- Eastern Illinois coach Dino Babers had seen enough, calling for a two-point conversion play in the first overtime Saturday night which gave his Panthers a thrilling 50-49 overtime victory over Murray State.
Having been on the receiving end all night, Eastern Illinois (2-2) receiver Erik Lora had his number called in the huddle once again, but this time to throw, not catch. He found Von Wise in the end zone on the two-point play for the victory.
Lora had 21 catches for 269 yards and three touchdowns Saturday. The 21 receptions were an Eastern Illinois and Ohio Valley Conference record.
Both teams recorded 1,142 yards of total offense, with Murray State (1-3) claiming 574 of it.
Casey Brockman was 43 of 64 for 423 yards and two touchdowns for the Racers.
