Illinois allows students to kick field goals during Student Appreciation Day and the team goes wild

Apparently involving fans in kicking contests is the flavor of the month this spring.

Ohio State announced it was allowing at least one fan on the field to kick a field goal during its Student Appreciation Day. So Illinois decided to one-up the Buckeyes and invite three fans to come kick field goals on Wednesday and enjoy free pizza.

Who does a Student Appreciation Day on a Wednesday? Oh well, take that, Urban.

All three students made their relatively short field goals, including a female kicker, whose kick looked a little rough but still went through the uprights.

Hey, if Illinois is ever hurting for a kicker, seems like they’ve got some candidates here — as long as the field goal isn’t further than an extra point.

Your move, Ohio State.
