DELAND, Fla. (AP) — Daniel Holbrook's kick for an extra point in overtime allowed Stetson to pull out a 34-33 win over St. Thomas University of Florida in the season opener for both schools on Saturday.
St. Thomas, an NAIA-member from Miami Gardens, Florida, tied the game on a 3-yard touchdown run by TyQuan Wiggins and an extra point by Alejandro Prado with 1:54 left in regulation. Wiggins scored from the 1 on the Bobcats' possession to start overtime but Prado's extra point kick missed, leaving the door open for the Hatters.
Matt O'Connor ran for 11 yards on Stetson's first play of OT and Kaderris Roberts carried three straight times to put the ball in the end zone to tie the game at 33.
Roberts carried 24 times for 133 yards and two touchdowns to lead Stetson.
Rontavious Farmer carried 32 times for 232 yards and two touchdowns for St. Thomas.
