On 4th-and-1 from their own 43-yard line, Rutgers ran a trick play. In their short yardage set-up, quarterback Gavin Wimsatt was under center and took the snap. He appeared to botch it, but instead snapped it back to Kyle Monangai.
With that, Monangai was off, running 45 yards down to the Ohio State 12-yard line.
Four plays later, Jai Patel kicked a 22-yard field goal to cut into the Ohio State lead and make it a 10-3 game.

With the win, they became bowl-eligible for the first time since 2014.
