FIU stuns Toledo 34-32 with last-second kick


AP Sports Writer

DETROIT (AP) - Jack Griffin's 34-yard field goal on the game's final play gave Florida International a stunning 34-32 win over Toledo on Sunday night in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl.

The Golden Panthers, playing in their first bowl, faced fourth-and-17 on their final drive before picking up the first down on a hook-and-lateral to T.Y. Hilton. Replays showed he might have stepped out of bounds short along the sideline, but the play stood after a review, putting the ball at the Toledo 42-yard line.

Moments later, Wes Carroll found Greg Ellingson across the middle to the Toledo 22, setting up the final kick for the Golden Panthers (7-6). Toledo (8-5) had taken the lead with 1:14 remaining on a touchdown run by Terrance Owens and a 2-point conversion pass to Eric Page.
