One of the most amazing field goals ever took place during Thursday’s game between South Alabama and Georgia State.
South Alabama kicker Gavin Patterson connected on a 46-yard attempt that bounced three times before sailing through the goal post to cut Georgia State’s lead to 10-6. The announcers were just as shocked as we were.
Fun Belt, indeed.
But despite South Alabama possibly having some kind of witchcraft on its side, it wasn’t enough to stop Georgia State as the Panthers held on to win, 21-13.
Still, the three-bounce field goal attempt has already gotten national attention as the biggest takeaway from Thursday’s game.
