Northwestern was clinging to a 9-6 lead against Michigan on Saturday as the Wolverines attempted to drive down the field with less than a minute left in regulation.
Michigan was able to get to midfield with less than 20 seconds left on the clock. Wolverines quarterback Devin Gardner then completed a 16-yard pass to wide out Jeremy Gallon. Gallon wasn't able to get out of bounds, though, and the clock continued to run.
It was then up to the Michigan field goal unit to sprint onto the field and execute a 44-yard attempt in 11 seconds. Brendan Gibbons was able to get the kick off just before the clock expired and sent the game into overtime. It turned out to be a huge play as Michigan went on to win 27-19 in triple OT!
