Grambling State Wins Celebration Bowl Over North Carolina Central

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep with the dramatic end to a bowl game. Grambling State played North Carolina Central and was leading 10-3. NC Central scored a touchdown - 6 points - which made it 10-9 with an extra-point kick to tie. But an NC Central player was penalized for celebrating in the end zone, which made the extra-point kick longer. And it was blocked. And the game ended 10-9. So the Celebration Bowl - that's what it was called - was decided by excessive celebration. You're listening to MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
