Michigan Sets Up, Kicks Improbable Game-Tying Field Goal In 12 Seconds As Clock Runs Out

Just your typical panicked 44-yard kick to send a game to triple overtime.

Down three points with 18 seconds left and facing 3rd and 23, the Michigan Wolverines completed a 16-yard pass to Jeremy Gallon. Which unfortunately, did not stop the clock.

So with 12 seconds left and no timeouts, the Wolverines had to get their entire field goal team onto the field. But holder Drew Dileo slid or possibly slipped into position, and Brendan Gibbons hit the 44-yarder to pull it off.

Three overtimes later, the Wolverines beat Northwestern 27-19, just like they drew it up.
