Big Kickers on Campus, 2011 week 7

A summary of notable kicking during the seventh week of the 2011 college football season:

Senior kicker Gregg Berkshire made a 43 yard field goal as time expired to give Ashland a 20-17 win over previously undefeated Wayne State.
"They [winds] were quite ... they were bad. I came out a little bit earlier in pregame to get a feel for it. It would be gusting in different directions at different speeds. It couldn't have just gone straight with the field to make things a lot easier. It had to be going all over the place."
Senior kicker Steven Schott's 27 yard field goal with 14:19 remaining in the fourth quarter proved to be the game winner in Ball State's 23-20 win over Ohio.

Senior kicker Michael Pinkerton’s 36 yard field goal in overtime gave Mars Hill a 31-28 win over Catawba.

Fourth-year kicker Matt Falvo hit an 11 yard field goal on the final play of the game to give Ottawa a 32-30 win over Windsor.
“It’s pretty cool. Ara Tchobanian [whose career FG record Falvo surpassed] is one of my best friends and he was like a mentor to me when he was here. He had a really great career, so it’s cool to be standing there with him now.”
Sophomore kicker Davis Brackett kicked three field goals, including a 35 yard game winner as time expired, to give West Georgia a 23-21 victory over Saint Augustine's.

Senior kicker Blair Walsh hit 4-of-6 field goals (53, 28, 36 & 44 yards) in Georgia's 33-28 win over Vanderbilt.

Junior kicker Coleman Petersen made field goals (23, 34, 39 & 45 yards) in the Utah’s 26-14 win at Pittsburgh.

If we missed someone that should be on the above list, please let us know!
