The Rice Owls lost 40-34 to Middle Tennessee State in two overtimes on Saturday after an improbable quadruple-doink field-goal miss.

The teams were playing in the first overtime, and Middle Tennessee State got the ball first. The Blue Raiders missed a 50-yard field-goal try after being sacked for an 11-yard loss on third down.

Rice got the ball next and essentially squatted on the ball three straight times to set up a 45-yard field-goal try to win the game. They brought on kicker Collin Riccitelli to attempt a field goal, and then this happened:

That ball bounced around like it was on the rim of a basketball hoop. A quadruple doink!

As if that weren’t bad enough, Rice had its field-goal attempt blocked on its possession in the second overtime. Middle Tennessee State put the game away with an Asher O’Hara touchdown run.

That was horrible luck on the field-goal try, but Rice didn’t do enough to win the game. Here we were thinking a double-doink field goal was wild. But a quadruple doink? Remarkable!
