Herink hits Stinson on 1st OT play, ETSU beats Mercer 26-23

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (AP) Jajuan Stinson broke behind the defenders and Austin Herink hit him as he stepped into the end zone to give East Tennessee State a 26-23 overtime victory over Mercer on Saturday.

Mercer's Cole Fisher had just booted a 29-yard field goal for a 23-20 lead. On the Buccaneers' first offensive play in the extra period, Herink connected with Stinson from the 25 to give ETSU (2-2, 1-1) its first Southern Conference win.

ETSU, trailing 20-10 going into the fourth, tied it after JJ Jerman's 49-yard field goal and Blake Rogers' 1-yard run with 4:41 left in regulation.
