ULL-ONSIDE-KICK - Sep 21, 2013 9_01 PM

With eight minutes remaining in their bout at Akron, Louisiana-Lafayette scored a touchdown to take a 28-24 lead. Their kicker then proceeded to do something either very stupid or very awesome: he attempted an onside kick to himself, and succeeded.

Akron, of course, is back to its losing ways after flirting with immortality last week in Ann Arbor, so it shouldn't surprise you they allowed such a stunt. Still, if this failed it would have given the Zips tremendous field position for a shot at taking back the lead—and with the momentum provided by their (probably extremely small) crowd. But, hey, that didn't happen. [ESPN3]
