One of the most amazing field goals ever took place during a 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.
Three-Bounce Field Goal
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 received national attention as the biggest takeaway from the game.
