Brendan Gibbons’ 44-yard field goal was certainly amazing as the last second effort eventually sent the Wolverines to a 27-19 triple overtime victory over Northwestern Saturday afternoon.
The epic final second boot also saved Michigan from another defeat with Brady Hoke calling it perhaps ‘the best single play’ he’s ‘ever seen’.
“That tells you about the discipline of these guys playing together,” Hoke said. “How they got on the field, how the guys who weren’t on the (field goal) team got off the field.
“It might be the best single play I’ve ever seen, because it was a team play.”
It certainly was thrilling, at least the final quarter and three overtimes. And I hate to be critical after a much needed road win but where was this clutch factor for Gibbons a few weeks ago against Penn State?
