November 22, 2014 - Jordan Wiggs kicks game winner over Northwestern State
"Senior Jordan Wiggs drilled a 41-yard field goal as time expired, propelling Stephen F. Austin to a 27-24 victory over border rival Northwestern State at Homer Bryce Stadium. With the win, SFA reclaims Chief Caddo for the fifth time in six years and keeps SFA's postseason hopes alive.... One week after Wiggs missed a 27-yard field goal that would have given SFA the lead late in the fourth quarter against Abilene Christian, the senior found himself with a chance at redemption, facing a season-long 41-yard attempt with four seconds on the clock. Northwestern State called a pair of timeouts to try and ice him, but his kick sailed through the uprights as the clock expired. 'Honestly, I was kind of glad they called timeout,' Wiggs said. 'It gave me a little time to compose my thoughts and get my mind right. I was ready to make that kick. That was absolutely the most important three points of my SFA career'." - KLTV

April 10, 2014 - spring specialists
"One area that hasn’t been much of a concern for the SFA coaching staff has been in the kicking game where the ‘Jacks return a pair of experienced veterans. Junior Nick Bruno returns after being named to the All-Southland Conference honorable mention team after averaging 39.27 yards per punt in 2013, the sixth-best average in school history. Also returning for SFA is senior kicker Jordan Wiggs who is looking to cap his career on a high note. A three-time All-SLC selection, Wiggs recorded 100 points for SFA in 2013, pushing his career point total to 267 and sitting just 34 points shy of surpassing Chuck Rawlinson (1988-91) as the ‘Jacks all-time point leader." - Lumberjacks
