Getting the bounce
It was Chris Papacek's second blocked kick of the day, at the end of the game that sparked the capper to Gallaudet's miracle win. Becker lined up for a 31-yard field goal with two seconds left in regulation and the game tied 34-34. Papacek came off the right edge, unblocked, and leaped and blocked the kick and Ryan Bonheyo scooped up the loose ball, in stride, as he ran the final 60 yards to the end zone and the game-winning touchdown.
