Gerst Scored First
Top 100 Moments of 2010
#49: The Long March
On a beautiful Homecoming day, the Lions began the game in what seemed like the best way possible.
After starting the game's opening possession on their 20, the Columbia offensive line took over by providing running holes for Sean Brackett, Zack Kourouma and Nick Gerst... in that order.
It was Gerst who finished off the 80-yard TD march with four straight runs for a total of 22 yards including the three yard score.
For some reason, possibly injury, Gerst would only carry the ball four more times the entire game.
Luke Eddy's PAT was perfect as usual, and Columbia had an uplifting 7-0 lead and a great beginning in front of a packed Wien Stadium house.
