RPI Beats Coast Guard 34-12 for 2002 Shotglass Trophy

D3football.com reports that RPI used a series of trick plays to defeat Coast Guard 34-12, and win the Shotglass Trophy for 2002. RPI jumped out to a 7-0 lead on a halfback option play from Flynn Cochran to Pat Hughes, good for 72 yards. In the third quarter Dan Cole completed a pass to Evan Cochran, who lateraled to Pat Hughes for a 59-yard gain, leading to a touchdown on the next play.

Rensselaer also picked off Coast Guard quarterback Matt Gully twice, on consecutive possessions in the first quarter, both for touchdowns. This resulted in RPI leading 21-0 with more than three-quarters of the game left to play, in spite of the fact that they had only run one offensive play.
