VIDEO: Air Force Two-Point Conversion Fails In 2011 Military Bowl

The 2011 Military Bowl ended in dramatic fashion on Wednesday evening. The Air Force Falcons scored a touchdown with left then a minute left in the game, cutting the score to 42-41 in favor of the Toledo Rockets. Air Force head coach Troy Calhoun sent out his kicking team for what appeared to be the extra point attempt.

However, Calhoun sent the kicking team out to attempt a fake point after touchdown attempt. And it didn't work. Punter/holder David Baska took the snap and began to run the ball. A Toledo defender, Jayrone Elliott, was able to get through the line and punched the ball out or Baska's hand. The ball tumbled into the end zone and then out of bounds.

It was a good try by the Falcons, but an even better play by Toledo to prevent the score.
