While much of the football world was focused squarely on the events unfolding in Las Vegas, Fan Controlled Football offered quite the change of pace from the 2022 NFL draft Saturday.

FCF entered into the third week of its 2022 season with a quartet of games spread across the day.

Despite being such a relatively early juncture, only two teams remained unbeaten through two games: Bored Ape FC and SB Stars. At the other end of the spectrum, both the Kingpins and Zappers were looking for their first win, with the former matching up against Bored Ape FC.

Here's a look at how the action unfolded.


FCF Week 3 Results

8oki def. Beasts, 44-38 (OT)

Bored Ape FC def. Kingpins, 28-20

SB Stars def. Glacier Boyz, 28-26

Knights of Degen def. Zappers, 36-34


FCF Week 3 Recap

8oki and the Beasts were unable to determine a winner in regulation.

8oki trailed by eight points with 19 seconds left in the second half. As he dropped back, Mitch Kidd was nearly on his own goal line when he heaved the ball toward Joseph Boykin.  Boykin not only fought off his defender but also maintained his balance down the sideline before hitting pay dirt.

Both teams scored on their opening possessions of overtime. Malcolm Ballard made what proved to be the breakthrough for the victory. The 8oki running back was on the way down but didn't hit the turf as he rolled over a Beasts player into the end zone.

It was a tough outcome for the Beasts, who couldn't capitalize on the 10-point lead they built in the first half. In a play that would echo the end of the second half, Kidd found Boykin over the middle with less than 20 seconds until halftime to help 8oki claw back.

The Beasts were up 14 inside the final minute, too.

All of that work was quickly undone, and they were relegated to their second defeat in three weeks.

Bored Ape FC maintained its perfect record by taking down the Kingpins 28-20.

With 6:28 left in the game, Collin Andrews hauled in a pass on a crossing route and piled up the YAC as he hit the sideline and surged toward the end zone. That allowed the Kingpins to tie the score at 20-all.

The score remained deadlocked as the game entered the last minute. On 1st-and-goal, Deondre Francois quickly surveyed the defense before tucking the ball on a quarterback draw. The former Florida State star patiently waited for a path to the score.

Francois was deadly with his legs, breaking off a long touchdown run on a read option in the second half.

Bored Ape FC is certainly a formidable outfit with the 6'1" signal-caller at the helm. 

Drama was once again the order of the day as SB Stars' late heroics improved their record to 3-0.

On 1st-and-10 with less than three minutes remaining, Brycen Alleyne took the handoff and scampered into the end zone as the Glacier Boyz jumped ahead 28-22. Alleyne displayed the vision that helped him run for 646 yards and five touchdowns in 2018 at Delaware State.

That still left SB Stars with plenty of time to deal the decisive blow.

Just nine seconds were on the clock when Slade Jarman took the snap out of the shotgun. Flushed from the pocket, he scrambled to his right and ran up the field. With a final dive into the end zone, Jarman put SB Stars into the lead with four seconds to spare.

It was quite a turnaround as the Glacier Boyz were up 20-14 with the ball inside the five-minute mark of the second half. A fumble by Alleyne proved costly as it allowed SB Stars back into the contest.

Pro Football Hall of Famer Terrell Owens and the Zappers played Knights of Degen in the nightcap.

Despite Owens scoring a first-half touchdown, the Knights of Degen pulled through with a 36-34 win after making a late defensive stop.

Owens' three-yard touchdown gave the Zappers a 12-6 lead.

For much of the game, though, this was a battle between quarterbacks as Knights of Degen's Ed Crouch and the Zappers' Kelly Bryant dominated the game.

Bryant, the former Clemson quarterback, had a pair of second-half touchdown runs, and he later found ex-Dallas Cowboys wideout Terrance Williams with a dime down the sideline:

Meanwhile, Crouch and his receivers were on the same page all game, with the signal-caller tossing four touchdowns and running for one more.

The Zappers had the ball in the final minute down 36-34 with a chance to win the game, but the Knights of Degen registered a sack with no time remaining.
