DALLAS (AP) Sonny Dykes decided not to wait for his first win as coach at SMU. He had to anyway.
Hunter Thedford caught a 2-point conversion pass in the first overtime on a play that led to several minutes of discussion by officials and a review before it was held up, and the Mustangs beat Navy 31-30 on Saturday for their first win over the Midshipmen in 20 years.
After Ben Hicks threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to James Proche, Dykes chose to go for the win because he liked the play he said the coaches found at Cal, his previous stop, when they googled "good 2-point plays." ("Believe it or not," he said.)
