Well, Thanksgiving dinner at this family's house next month could be more interesting than usual...

On Saturday, Buffalo and Western Michigan played the highest-scoring game in FBS history, with Western Michigan pulling out a 71-68 victory after seven overtimes.

But as improbable as that was, it doesn't really compare to what happened during the first overtime of the game.

Western Michigan's Donnie Ernsberger scored a touchdown in the first OT, prompting his sister to rush the field and give him a big hug.

The only problem, of course, is Ernsberger's touchdown didn't end the game, because this is college football, not the NFL.

According to Sports Illustrated, Western Michigan received a 15-yard penalty for the actions of Ernsberger's sister, who was kicked out of the game.

Fortunately, Western Michigan went on to win anyway -- eventually. All's well that ends well?
