    Play of the game? 4th and 15.... gutsy call that paid huge dividends.

    Yeah. No question that call swung the game. Kilby is a beast.

    I said during the Iowa game that this team just needed one play to put them all together. I was right, it just happened 10 games later than I was expecting.

    Kirby delivers every time his number is called. What a fun way for him to end his college career.....minus the hit he took:pwink:.

    I think he enjoyed the hit. He popped up and was excited. Great way for a great kid to end his career.

    Every punter should end his college career in such a fashion.

    Who would have thought that the last time he touched a football in an Iowa State uniform wasn't with his foot?

    I had already forgotten about that play. The game was so long and so much happened after that play. But you're right, that was THE play that turned this thing around. Without that, we lose IMO.

    Of course, we would have lost without Rohach's conversion on the slant on 4th and 5 also. He sure did make some huge throws when he needed to tonight.

    Agreed. Play of the game. But so was the fumble at the 1...and the pick...and the passes to Coleman...

    I remember an interview with Kirby after one of his fake punts and he stated something to the effect that he wasn't a fan of running or getting hit. I thought that was pretty funny from a punter. No doubt he was excited today. He's going to be missed.

    It seems like Kirby is perfect on fake punts in his career. I can't remember him ever coming up short on a fake ever. Best fake punter in the country.

    Kirby took a shot on that tackle too. What a baller to hang onto the football and get up victoriously.

    I love the stat. there's no reason the offense can't have similar success.

    Great run on the punt. This was similar to Nebraska's fake against the Hawks yesterday except for the fact that Kirby executed it well and it was run into a safe return coverage, not after a timeout when the D was looking for a fake. CPR made a good call on this one and our guys executed well. Great Play! Go State!
