BOISE, Idaho | Max Komar made a sliding 16-yard touchdown catch with four seconds left and Nathan Enderle passed to Preston Davis for the two-point conversion, lifting Idaho to a dramatic 43-42 victory over Bowling Green in Wednesday night’s Humanitarian Bowl.

The Falcons took a 42-35 lead with 32 seconds left on a 51-yard pass from Tyler Sheehan to Freddie Barnes, who slipped behind the Idaho secondary for his 17th catch of the game and No. 155 in his NCAA record-setting season.

But Idaho answered with a 50-yard heave from Enderle to Davis that got the ball to the Bowling Green 16. After an incompletion with eight seconds left, Enderle found Komar — who had dropped a number of passes — in the middle of the field, and he slid to cradle the low pass.

Coach Robb Akey then decided to go for the two-point conversion, and Enderle threw to Davis alone in the back of the end zone.
