BC kicker in perfect spot to shock No. 1 Notre Dame

SOUTH BEND, IND. -- David Gordon says it was like a long extra point.

The ball was on the Notre Dame 24-yard line and it was smack in the middle of the field. There were 5 seconds left and Boston College was trailing by 1 point. This wasn’t like the (ugh) Northwestern game, when he was asked to win the game with a 40-yarder from the left hash mark and wound up hooking it wide right.
