The phrase “college kickers” has become synonymous with bad misses, but occasionally the kickers flip the script and something crazy.
Oregon State Beavers kicker Everett Hayes not only drilled a 60-yard field goal but did so in a pressure situation to force overtime against the Colorado Buffaloes. Hayes went 2-3 on field goals and 3-3 on extra points in the contest. He’s 85.7 percent on field goals and 100 percent on extra points during the season, showing this 60-yard boot was not a fluke.
Oregon State was down 19-10 in this game but eventually took a 24-20 lead in the contest. Colorado scored a touchdown to take a 27-24 lead late but Hayes’ boot wiped out that advantage for the Buffaloes.
