Here’s something you won’t see every day. A college football game that went into overtime thanks to a 60-yard field goal had something else happen that no one expected.
Oregon State’s Everett Hayes nailed a record breaking 60-yard field goal to force overtime against Colorado and just as the ball sailed through the goalposts, it nailed a cheerleader on the head. She was definitely not expecting that and she wasn’t even facing the field. She was facing the crowd and doing her job as the ball literally came out of nowhere and just booped her on the back of the head.
As you can see in the video, it looks like she keeps going. Hopefully she’s alright!
As for the game – Oregon State and Colorado went into double overtime and Colorado came through with an upset, winning with a score of 37-34.
WATCH IT HAPPEN:
Denver Post stated: CU won the game on true freshman Cole Becker’s 43-yard field goal, which came shortly after Hayes missed a 38-yarder in the second OT. “That’s the moment that all kickers dream about that, right there,” Becker said. “And I’m so proud of the way this team rallied.” The Buffs improved to 3-6 overall and 2-4 in the Pac-12. The Beavers (5-4, 3-3), trying to become bowl eligible for the first time since 2013, suffered a huge defeat in that quest.
