Hurricane named top play of bowl season

The Central Michigan University football team’s last-second Hail Mary touchdown pass at the end of the inaugural Popeyes Bahamas Bowl was named ESPN’s No. 1 play of the college football bowl season.

The play was also named the No. 2 play of the year 2014, behind New York Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr.’s one-handed catch. The play was also voted the Michigan Sports play of the year by the Detroit Free Press.

Immediately following the play, social media sites began buzzing with fans reacting to what some called the “college football play of the century.”

Noonan’s health status still unknown

Taylor Noonan, one of the Central Michigan University’s most vocal and pertinent gymnastics leaders was not available for the Chippewas' loss to the University of Illinois on Sunday due to injury.

Noonan suffered a right knee injury days before the Chippewas first loss of the season. Head Coach Jerry Reighard said the injury is not a season-ending ligament tear. Her status remains uncertain.

Noonan entered the season No. 1 in the Mid-American Conference on the beam and notched a 9.6 in that category in the Chippewas home opener against Wisconsin-Eau Claire.
