Clutch Field Goal

October 28th, 2008

Kevin Goessling of Fresno State kicked a 58-yard field goal with time expiring on Saturday to beat Utah State 30-28. That’s the definition of a clutch field goal attempt: make it and you win or keep playing; miss it and the game’s over, you lose.

Goessling is the 33rd player since the start of the 2005 season to kick a field goal on the last play of regulation or in overtime, with his team trailing, that either won or tied the game. At 58 yards, Goessling’s kick is the longest in those situations, six yards longer than Alex Trlica’s 52-yard boot on December 29, 2006.

Here are the successful “make it or lose” field goals of 35 yards or longer since 2005:
