Forbath a bright spot for UCLA

October 28th, 2009

UCLA junior placekicker Kai Forbath kicked a 53-yard field goal in a losing effort against Arizona last Saturday. It was Forbath’s third field goal made this season of 50 or more yards and was the ninth of 50 or more yards in his career.

Here are the top-10 active career leaders in field goals made from 50 or more yards.

Forbath is 3 of 5 from 50 or more yards this season, having made each of his first six career attempts. Amazingly, Forbath’s two missed kicks from 50 or more yards are the only field goals he’s missed this season. He is 16 of 16 from 49 yards or less.   He also leads the nation in field goals made per game.

It’s notable that the above table contains four sophomores and only two seniors.  Eight of the ten kickers in the table are on the Lou Groza Award watch list — only Mahoney and Jackson missed the list.
