Collins' last-minute TD grab lifts Butler to 25-24 win over Campbell in Pioneer opener


INDIANAPOLIS — Brandon Collins made a one-handed grab in the corner of the end zone on a pass from Matt Shiltz with 37 seconds remaining to give Butler a 25-24 victory on Saturday.

The 2-yard scoring play and the PAT gave the Bulldogs (3-1, 1-0 Pioneer) their first lead of the game. A 42-yard pass to Collins on fourth down kept the drive alive as did a pass interference penalty on fourth down that put Butler on the Campbell 2. The two catches by Collins were his only receptions.

Campbell (2-2, 0-1) reached the Butler 31 but a penalty knocked the Camels back and a Hail Mary pass was intercepted.

Shiltz finished 21 of 38 for 234 yards and two scores.

Campbell's Kameron Bryant was 15 of 24 for 213 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions. DeShawn Jones rushed for 133 yards on 17 carries, including a 72-yard score.
