A summary of notable kicking during the ninth week of the 2011 college football season:
Sophomore kicker Zeb Miller kicked a 54 yard field goal with 1:52 left to lift North Dakota to a 27-25 victory over Northern Colorado.
“Two or three different coaches came over to me and were like, ‘Hey, we’re going to put you in position, you’ve got to forget about those two [missed] kicks and hit it between the pipes because we’re going to need a game-winner.’ They had complete confidence in me and put me out there, and I did what they expected me to do.
I got a great snap and a great hold from my snapper and holder. The line blocked great, and I’ve got to have all those parts before it even gets to me. And then after I hit it, I heard a sound, so I imagine it maybe got tipped a little bit, so I was a little worried after that, but it somehow found its way in the pipes, and I was very, very excited.”
