In FBS history, a missed field goal has only been returned for a touchdown four times. There [had] never been a walk-off field goal return — scoring the winning touchdown on the last play, much less the last play of the biggest game of the year, between teams ranked No. 1 and No. 4, with everything at stake.
In a sport that dates to 1869, this literally was unprecedented.
