It was quite the Halloween treat for Miami fans Saturday.

The Hurricanes gave up a 24-12 fourth-quarter lead against No. 22 Duke Saturday, but Miami came back to win it with a pretty spectacular play on the final kickoff return.

Miami received the kickoff, lateraled the ball eight times before scoring a 75-yard touchdown to win the game, 30-27, CBS Sports notes.

Watch the play above.

Some are arguing the final play shouldn't have counted, however, and the Atlantic Coast Conference has suspended the officials for two league games for "a series of errors" on the final play, The Associated Press reports.
